Virginia Woolf
“Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.”
Virginia Woolf

Flannery O'Connor
“Everywhere I go I'm asked if I think the university stifles writers. My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them. There's many a best-seller that could have been prevented by a good teacher.”
Flannery O'Connor

Ernest Hemingway
“The first draft of anything is shit.”
Ernest Hemingway

Thomas Mann
“A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.”
Thomas Mann, Essays of Three Decades
