For the past few weeks, I was posting quotations that I like on my Facebook page.
Many of them were from my witty friend Oscar Wilde. Then I thought why not quote Bottledworder? All I need to do is to look inside. So here are some words of wisdom from BW’s Good Angel and Bad:
- The best writing happens when you’re not trying to make the best writing happen!
- But to type, you need to strive.
- When it fits, it fits.
- But to get it, you need to sit on it.
- When readers get it,they get it.
- But to make an idea fly, you need to try.
- You don’t care, if the world is fair.
- But they’ll visit, if you persist.
- Just do it.
That last one though is not Bottledworder’s! (It’s about shoes, not writing.)

Always a good post. I just typed The End to my latest book The Catch and went back in to the text to find a place to write another line. The scent of magnolias would always be ruined by the smell of blood pooling at my feet. I guess you’d have to be there. A moment in the life of a writer.
These are some great bits of wisdom for every writer out there. Thanks for sharing them. I also get inspired by quotes, and those I find myself especially drawn to I post on my blog: http://thoughtsofafutureauthor.wordpress.com/quotes/
I find great inspiration relying to posts. So many artists and writers to inspire me.
Without trying, Nike’s responsible for the best bit of wisdom of the last 30 years.
I like to quote videogames: “I don’t need luck, I have skill.”
These are all good words to contemplate. My favorite quotes comes from “Finding Forrester” such as:
Writers write, readers read
Write, don’t think. Thinking comes later.
Love it! You just helped validate my desire to launch a blog!
I love that first quote. It’s very true.
Ohhh…compared to Oscar Wilde. Big Victoian slippers to fill. Take care not to end up in cell B-23, Reading Gaol. Later…
Gems all. Here’s mine from my novel Live from the Road: Always head in the direction you’re going.
Oh, I love this post. I just wrote a post the other day quoting myself from a previous post, and I thought “How narcissistic can I possibly get???” but now here I am, getting validation from your blog for doing it 🙂 Thanks!
All so true. I do tend to bounce ideas with my fellow writers on skype, and then inspiration sparks, from a simple quip, and off I go. When you least expect it, miracles happen. My muses, my friends.
I’ve been following your Facebook.. Seeing a sensible quoter on my Newsfeed, of all places, is a very welcome sight! 😀
“But they’ll visit, if you persist.”
It’s been my experience that ‘sadly’ many new to blogging give up in the first few month due to a reluctance to persist…. I persisted, and now am very happy I did so…. Sometimes this is all it takes; a consistent effort..!
