Learn to write by doing it. Read widely and wisely. Increase your word power. Find your own individual voice though practicing constantly. Go through the world with your eyes and ears open and learn to express that experience in words.
P.D. James (via writersrelief)
Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.
George Orwell, Why I Write (via feellng)
I fell in love with you the way paperbacks fall down on shelves; slowly, and then all at once
I do not spew profanities. I enunciate them clearly, like a fucking lady.
