Five Great Quotes about the Business of Writing

“There are 11255022_10152725608695216_3981799104677729682_n three difficulties in authorship: to write anything worth publishing – to find honest men to publish it – and to get sensible men to read it.” – Charles Caleb Cotton

“Writers are schizophrenic. On the one hand we tell ourselves, ‘This is a work of genius! I’ve created Art!’ Then we try to peddle it, like a widget, to The New Yorker, Playboy, or SF Age.” – Ken Rand

“Most writers can write books faster than publishers can write checks.” – Richard Curtis

“Sir, nobody but a blockhead ever wrote except for money.” – Samuel Johnson

“Instead of marveling with Johnson, how anything but profit should incite men to literary labor, I am rather surprised that mere emolument should induce them to labor so well.” – Thomas Green

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Columbia, South Carolina, or a small town like Caulksvile, Arkansas, I can provide that second eye.
