I have read that book multiple times and each time it gets me going. Although I am not a big fan of Stephen kings writing basically because I don't read horror he does have a way to get me motivated though.

It's useful to see all these quotes in one place. Good job.

There's actually a lot of books written by famous authors on how to write. Chandler, Ludlum, Higgins, Highsmith and many more, have all tried to codify the discipline.

Me: I find it can be a hindrance listening to famous authors too much. Their voice is so powerful, the weight of their experience and fame. I try not to think about it so much, and just do it. I try not to consider myself a writer, in order to not be self-conscious about what I'm doing.

"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

I deleted all those posts because someone said it can violate copyright on another one of my topics, so unfortunately I'll just delete everything to be safe.

Slowly putting together a "replacement" forum at http://writerswriting.proboards.com.

It's still under construction, but come take a look.
