I have been sick as a dog for a few days, so instead of our regularly scheduled How To Tuesday, I'm going to post a few more quotes that I love. Hopefully we'll be back up and running as normal tomorrow :) Happy Writing!
Words are to be taken seriously. I try to take seriously acts of language. Words set things in motion. I've seen them doing it. Words set up atmospheres, electrical fields, charges. I've felt them doing it. Words conjure. I try not to be careless about what I utter, write, sing. I'm careful about what I give voice to.
~Toni Cade Bambara
You don't choose a word if you're a writer as a golf pro chooses a club with the shot in mind. You choose it with yourself in mind --your needs, your passions. It has to carry to the green, yes, but it must also carry you. ~Archibald MacLeish
Writing is an affair of words rather than soul...If the words aren't there, nothing happens.
