Quote of the day:
"Don't sweat the small stuff"
Today you can see some famous faces and some quotes behind their works. Ever wondered what they looked like? Here you go. Notice the way they are dressed, the size of their working desk, their pencils and pens dipped in ink, and the good old typewriters. Mm ... I wrote my first three short stories on a typewriter. Then computers arrived, bought one and let it sit on my study desk for three days before I turned it on. I've never looked back.
"Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass"
G K Chesterton
"I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice,
and then going away and doing the exact opposite."
"If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it."
"I'm always pretending that I'm sitting across from somebody.
I'm telling them a story, and I don't want them to get up until it's finished."
"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."
Edgar Allen Poe
"A short story must have a single mood and every sentence must build towards it."
"I try to leave out the parts that people skip."
"Never use a long word where a short one will do."
"Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for."
F. Scott Fitzgerald
