Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

Just had to provide humor for those who are writers, and those who want to be writers.

  • From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.– Winston Churchill
  • I wrote a few children’s books. Not on purpose. – Steven Wright
  • I get a lot of letters from people. They say: “I want to be a writer. What should I do?” I tell them to stop writing to me and get on with it. – Ruth Rendell
  • If writers were good businessmen, they’d have too much sense to be writers. – Irvin S. Cobb
  • If Moses were alive today he’d come down from the mountain with the Ten Commandments and spend the next five years trying to get them published.– Anonymous
  • The road to hell is paved with adverbs.– Stephen King
  • If the English language made any sense, lackadaisical would have something to do with a shortage of flowers. – Doug Larson
  • Learn to write. Never mind the damn statistics. If you like statistics, become a CPA.– Jim Murray
  • The dubious privilege of a freelance writer is he’s given the freedom to starve anywhere. – S.J. Perelman
  • An autobiography usually reveals nothing bad about its writer except his memory.– Franklin P. Jones
  • Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs.– Christopher Hampton
  • It took me fifteen years to discover I had no talent for writing, but I couldn’t give it up because by that time I was too famous. – Robert Benchley
  • How many writers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
    One to screw it in,
    One to sharpen all the pencils in the house,
    One to make more coffee,
    One to call a friend to chat,
    And one to complain that there’s never time to do any writing.
    Wait, that’s only five — that’s why they need editors.
