“Writers on Writing”

So part of the reason I started this blog is because I love to write, and I feel like it’s been awhile since I had a post that actually focused on writing.

One of my journalism professors at Notre Dame started each class with a quote about writing, and then at the end of the semester gave each of us a copy of the quotes we had heard all semester, a document he called “Writers on Writing.”

It’s full of great quotes, many by familiar names, others by ones you might not recognize immediately.  But all inspirational and wise words about the craft of writing.  One quote in particular sums up why I started this blog, and I wanted to share it with you all:

“Had I known the answer to any of these questions, I would never have needed to write.”~ Joan Didion
