Writers have called writing everything from curse to cure, art to addiction, passion to purpose. Some called writing a reason to live; others thought it a cause of death. Peeking at Pillars is a collection of quotations about writing from which author Steven Lundin extracts universal truths about writing and reconciles them with his five year experience of writing every day but two. He relates the humor, hopes, fears, and frustrations of the pillars of writing to the modern experience of writing. For example, Lundin uses:ac Margaret Atwood's aThe wastebasket has evolved for a reasona to explain how Atwood's awrite, wad, and tossa is today's akey press, backspace, delete-delete, cut, copy, and paste, a showing that failure has gone greenac F. Scott Fitzgerald's aFirst you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you, a to explain to new writers: aFirst you write a character, then the character tells his story, then you take the creditaac Virginia Woolf's, aFor a woman to write fictionab, a to answer what is needed For A Man to Write Fictionac Tolstoy's aAll happy families are alikeaba to warn writers how easily the first line of novels can assure Your Place in the Graveac P.G. Wodehouse's aI just sit at my typewriter and curse a bita to remind writers how fortunate they are to have computers a athat is, they're fortunate when the damn things work.aPeeking at Pillars is for readers and writers, men and women, young and old, and the busy and the bored. Its bite sized portions make it ideal for travel or late night reading.Ghostwriter Dad 50 Inspirational Writing Quotes http://ghostwriterdad.com/50- inspirational-writingquotes/ Eminent Quotables: What Writers Say About Writing http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/quotes/quot es_frames.htm Inspirationalanbsp;...
