Tips on Writing from 5 Famous Writers

1. “Something is always born of excess: great art was born of great terrors, great loneliness, great inhibitions, instabilities, and it always balances them.”
-             Anais Nin

2. “As a writer you should not judge. You should understand.”
     -         Ernest Hemingway

3. “Talented writing makes things happen in the reader’s mind — vividly, forcefully — that good writing, which stops with clarity and logic, doesn’t.”
    -      Samuel Delaney

4. “Short stories demand a certain awareness of one’s own intentions, a certain narrowing of the focus.”
-            Joan Didion

    5.   All creative art is magic, is evocation of the unseen in forms persuasive, enlightening, familiar and surprising, for the edification of mankind.”
        - Joseph Conrad
