Just a few quotes from the archives of rich and famous :winkiss:

I love being a writer. What I can't stand is the paperwork.
-- Peter De Vries (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/d/Peter_De_Vries_1.htm)


I handed in a script last year and the studio didn't change one word. The word they didn't change was on page 87.
-- [I]Steve Martin (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/m/Steve_Martin_1.htm) (at the 2003 Oscars®)

No man but a blockhead ever wrote, except for money.
-- Samuel Johnson (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/j/Samuel_Johnson_1.htm)

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
-- Tom Clancy (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/c/Tom_Clancy_1.htm)

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps.
-- Robert Benchley (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/b/Robert_Benchley_1.htm)

It took me fifteen years to discover that I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous.
-- Robert Benchley (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/b/Robert_Benchley_1.htm) (Robert Benchley by Nathaniel Benchley, 1955)

A writer is congenitally unable to tell the truth and that is why we call what he writes fiction.
-- William Faulkner (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/f/William_Faulkner_1.htm)

I never know what I think about something until I read what I've written on it.
-- William Faulkner (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/f/William_Faulkner_1.htm)

beer o’clock.
-- [I]Stephen King (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/k/Stephen_King_1.htm) On his 9 to 5 writing day, Time - 6 Oct 86

People want to know why I do this, why I write such gross stuff. I like to tell them I have the heart of a small boy -- and I keep it in a jar on my desk.
-- Stephen King (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/k/Stephen_King_1.htm)

There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.
-- Somerset Maugham (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/m/Somerset_Maugham_1.htm)

The profession of book-writing makes horse racing seem like a solid, stable business.
-- John Steinbeck (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/s/John_Steinbeck_1.htm)

The trouble with young writers is that they are all in their sixties.
-- Somerset Maugham (http://www.amusingquotes.com/h/m/Somerset_Maugham_1.htm)

Alas, and alack
I have come back
You see, my woe,
I had to go
Too long you see
I had to pee
But now, at last
the deed is past
and times have come
where I'm too dumb
To hide my wit
wherein I sit
and slay the beast
that do truly feast
upon this slush
the deadly hush
that doth compose
Well, I suppose
this dreary brain
I say again
this brain of mine
Which once was fine
but certainly lacks
now that I'm back


Phew

Wonder if all that means anything.
