Five Great Quotations about Craft of Writing

“Words create Craft of Writing sentences; sentences create paragraphs; sometimes paragraphs quicken and begin to breathe.” - Stephen King

“Don’t use words too big for the subject. Don’t say infinitely when you mean very; otherwise you’ll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite.” - C.S. Lewis

“And I love Jane Austen’s use of language too – the way she takes her time to develop a phrase and gives it room to grow, so that these clever, complex statements form slowly and then bloom in my mind. Beethoven does the same thing with his cadence and phrasing and structure. It’s a fact: Jane Austen is musical. And so’s Yeats. And Wordsworth. All the great writers are musical.” - Andrew Clements

“Maugham then offers the greatest advice anyone could give to a young author: ‘At the end of an interrogation sentence, place a question mark. You’d be surprised how effective it can be.’” - Woody Allen

“I did not begin with craft, I began with strong feelings and worked toward craft.” - Dorothy Allison

Professional Book Editor: Having your novel, short story or nonfiction manuscript 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. I can provide that second eye.
