WG: Quotes on writing

deweys-weekly-geeks27I’m not really one to collect quotes. I had been thinking of starting, though, recently, as I’ve run across several good thoughts about writing. Part of my motivation to keep track of them now, too, is that I may display a couple of them at my new (still in progress at the moment) writing nook.

This week’s Weekly Geeks assignment (presented by Terri), then, is timed just right (I haven’t participated the last few weeks because the tasks seemed really hard!). So what’s the assignment this time? Post a quote every day.

Because a good writing day is better than all the mangosteens in the world. Because a good writing day wipes the memory of all those bad writing days entirely. Because I love it.
