Five Quotations about Writing as Self-Discovery

“What obsesses 240_F_111746042_PErd0zJbQs0xRvBDC9GiJEuRqfaodOIsa writer starting out on a lifetime's work is the panic-stricken search for a voice of his own.” – John Mortimer

“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” – Anaïs Nin

“Most of the basic material a writer works with is acquired before the age of fifteen.” – Willa Cather

“Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It’s about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.” – Stephen King

“The more closely the author thinks of why he wrote, the more he comes to regard his imagination as a kind of self-generating cement which glued his facts together, and his emotions as a kind of dark and obscure designer of those facts. Reluctantly, he comes to the conclusion that to account for his book is to account for his life.” – Richard Wright

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 Memphis, Tennessee, or a small town like Eastabutchie, Mississippi, I can provide that second eye.
