Famous writers talk about writing

All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse, and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. – Ernest Hemingway

What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. – Anne Lamott

Writing is easy:  All you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead.  – Gene Fowler 

The two most engaging powers of an author are to make new things familiar and familiar things new.  – Samuel Johnson 

And this one is too true…

The best time for planning a book is while you’re doing the dishes.  – Agatha Christie
