Quote of the Week

Today’s quote comes from Ernest J. Gaines, author of A Lesson before Dying. The most repeated piece of advice from famous authors is to write every day and to read. I’m pretty much in the habit of writing each day, but I need to reestablish the reading one.

“My six words of advice to writers are: ‘Read, read, read, write, write, write.’ Writing is a lonely job; you have to read, and then you must sit down at the desk and write. There’s no one there to tell you when to write, what to write, or how to write. I tell students if they are going to be writers, they must sit down at a desk and write every day.” – Ernest J. Gaines
