The Best Training

“The best training is to read and write, no matter what. Don’t live with a lover or roommate who doesn’t respect your work. Don’t lie, buy time, borrow to buy time. Write what will stop your breath if you don’t write.”
— Grace Paley

      • I write on papers, for the same reason you write on laptop 🙂 my thoughts and the connection between them come too fast and I need to draw lines between them to tell how they connect before I forget 🙂 and I can’t do that on computer 🙂

  1. That is the most beautiful quote on writing I have seen to-date. That is saying something because I gather writing quotes around me like little friends.

  2. Reblogged this on Robin Coyle and commented:
    After spending a grueling weekend editing, the quote on this blog post moved me. Did the words make you teary too, or am I exhausted? How lovely they are.

    • Don’t mind at all. Thanks so much for the reblog. I appreciate it and good luck with your editing, which I think can be, at times, much more grueling than writing!
