“A writer is a world trapped in a person.” #writing #amwriting #writerslife

There is no better curse than to be a writer.

Why constrain yourself to one world and one life, when you can build thousands for yourself?

With imagination you can climb impossible mountains, fly dragons, and win wars.

You can die, and be reborn.

You can solve great mysteries, or create them.

Make people, and then make them hate one another or fall in love.

Send them out on perilous quests that they might, at your whim, win or lose.

You can go with them, or decide to watch them from afar.

Yes, there really is no better curse than to be a writer.

I am a prisoner in a book #writing #amwriting #writingquotes

Once I dive into these pages

I may not come out for ages.

Books have powers over me.

Inside a book I am not free.

I am a prisoner in a land

of print on paper in my hand.

But do not worry. Do not fear.

I am a happy captive here.

 

Captive by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater

Writing is still the wildest thing I know #amwriting #writingquotes #writing

We all have wild dreams, fantasies, and ordinary thoughts. Let us to feel the texture of them and not be afriad of them. Writing is still the wildest thing I know.
