Motivational Monday

Read, read, read. Read everything—trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the most. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it is good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out the window.
~ William Faulkner ~

  1. I learned a long time ago that reading anything was better than nothing. Faulkner–what a genius.

  2. I disagree. If what you write is bad, keep it around and improve upon it. Never throw out any of your writing. You never know when you’ll be able to rework it. (The rest of the quote I agree with, however.)

  3. Very good point, Liz!
