But a real writer is always thinking like a writer, and the stories are still forming and shaping in the writer's head.

Quotes by Kathleen M. Rodgers  (?)

“For some the truth is too painful to hear. For others, it’s a healing balm. This is why I write - to heal.”
Kathleen M. Rodgers

“A writer must get beyond the thrill of a byline, plunge deeper than the words themselves, and dive head-on into a bottomless pit where all the good stories are swimming around waiting to be rescued from the soul.”
Kathleen M. Rodgers ~ 1998”

“When we elevate others, we elevate ourselves. Let’s all go be “elevators.”

Kathleen M. Rodgers ~ 1998”
Kathleen M. Rodgers

“All good writers write [terrible first drafts.] This is how they end up with good second drafts and terrific third drafts. . . I know some very great writers, writers you love who write beautifully and have made a great deal of money, and not one of them sits down routinely feeling wildly enthusiastic and confident. Not one of them writes elegant first drafts. All right, one of them does, but we do not like her very much. We do not think that she has a rich inner life or that God likes her or can even stand her. (Although when I mentioned this to my priest friend Tom, he said you can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“When we elevate others, we elevate ourselves. Let’s all go be “elevators.”
KMR”
Kathleen M. Rodgers, Johnnie Come Lately

“To all you writers, artists, musicians, creative types who want to give up: It's okay to walk away for a bit. Get your second wind. But your writing, art, music will be there, lurking over your shoulder, and it will call to you, and you will answer. And come back even stronger.”
