June Words of Wisdom - Reading and Writing

That I can read and be happy while I am reading is a great blessing. --Anthony Trollope

My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way. --Ernest Hemingway  

There is something delicious about writing the first words of story. You never quite know where they'll take you. --Beatrix Potter

Writing is the only thing that when I do it, I don't feel I should be doing something else. --Gloria Steinem

Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it's the only way you can do anything good. --William Faulkner

Writing leads to writing. --Julia Cameron (Write for Life)
