Wednesday’s words for writers

November 28, 2012

Is inspiration overrated? Here’s what three writers say about it:

Writer’s block is a condition that affects amateurs and people who aren’t serious about writing. So is the opposite, namely inspiration, which amateurs are also very fond of. Putting it another way: a professional writer is someone who writes just as well when they’re not inspired as when they are.” — Phillip Pullman

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” — Stephen King

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.”  – Jack  London
