Top Journal Of A Novel Quotes

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Arnold Schwarzenegger

The key to success? Work hard, stay focused and marry a Kennedy. — Arnold Schwarzenegger

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Jess Walter

I pretty much drink a cup of coffee, write in my journal for a while, and then sit at a computer in my office and torture the keys. My one saving grace as a writer is that, if I'm having trouble with the novel I'm writing, I write something else, a poem or a short story. I try to avoid writer's block by always writing something. — Jess Walter

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Thomas Mallon

For almost every novel I've written, I've read the daily newspaper of the time almost as if it were my current subscription. For 'Two Moons,' which was set in 1877, I think I read just about every day of the 'Washington Evening Star' for that year. For 'Henry and Clara,' I read the 'Albany Evening Journal' of the time. — Thomas Mallon

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Lenny Bruce

The role of a comedian is to make the audience laugh, at a minimum of once every fifteen seconds. — Lenny Bruce

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Washington Irving

To occupy an inch of dusty shelf-to have the title of their works read now and then in a future age by some drowsy churchman or casual straggler, and in another age to be lost, even to remembrance. Such is the amount of boasted immortality. — Washington Irving

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Roland Barthes

In the letters he sends to his friend, Werther recounts both the events of his life and the effects of his passion; but it is literature which governs the mixture. For if I keep a journal, we may doubt that this journal relates, strictly speaking, to events. The events of amorous life are so trivial that they gain access to writing only by an immense effort: one grows discouraged writing what, by being written, exposes its own platitude: "I ran into X, who was with Y" "Today X didn't call me" "X was in a bad mood," etc.: who would see a story in that? The infinitesimal event exists only in its huge reverberation: Journal of my reverberations (of my wounds, my joys, my interpretations, my rationalizations, my impulses): who would understand anything in that? Only the Other could write my love story, my novel. — Roland Barthes

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Sue Monk Kidd

I sometimes start keeping a journal about the writing process itself. Particularly when I get the ideas, and I am trying to brood over the chaos phase. In writing a novel, you really have to brood over a lot of chaos of ideas and possibilities. — Sue Monk Kidd

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Brian Lamb

More than anything else, we need in this society the opportunity for people to tell us what they think without being told that they're either dumb, or stupid, or uninformed. — Brian Lamb

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Ole Hallesby

Pray a little each day in a childlike way for the Spirit of prayer. If you feel that you know, as yet, very little concerning the deep things of prayer and what prayer really is, then pray for the Spirit of prayer. There is nothing He would rather do than unveil to you the grace of prayer. — Ole Hallesby

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Cassandra Krivy Hirsch

Father has taught me that when something is lost, whether dear or not, giving up the search is sometimes best and often enough the lost article finds its owner. — Cassandra Krivy Hirsch

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Patrick Jones

These are the screams within these are the life streams bleeding from skin — Patrick Jones

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By John Steinbeck

Here is individual responsibility and the invention of conscience. You can if you will but it is up to you. This little story(from the Bible)turns out to be one of the most profound in the world. I always felt it was,but now I know it is.
John Steinbeck

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Elizabeth George

I really liked the idea of creating a journal myself. It's like the way I clear my throat. I write a page every day, maybe 500 words. It could be about something I'm specifically worried about in the new novel; it could be a question I want answered; it could be something that's going on in my personal life. I just use it as an exercise. — Elizabeth George

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Suzanne Somers

Forgive the person who has caused the most pain in your life and it will make you feel better. — Suzanne Somers

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Lizz Winstead

Unless you can point to something that I have done or said that has changed the course of the public opinion in a negative way, you've got to check yourself sometimes and say, "Maybe I don't like the way that this thing is said, but it's expanding tolerance." If I said something that was shutting down something that was positive, call me out, but I don't really see me doing that. — Lizz Winstead

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Leigh Hershkovich

Never stop writing. Whether you're writing a novel, screen play or just keeping a journal, it's integral that you make writing a daily process. The proof of the commitment to your craft is just how much time you spend doing it, whether it's for business or pleasure. Integrate your craft into your every day life, and you'll be as good as gold. — Leigh Hershkovich

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Lupe Fiasco

The biggest terrorist is Obama. — Lupe Fiasco

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By John Gardner

Sometimes when one cannot stand the story or novel one
is working on, it helps to write something else - a different
story or novel, or essays venting one's favorite peeves, or exercises
aimed at passing the time and incidentally polishing up
one's craft. The best way in the world for breaking a writer's
block is to write a lot. Jabbering away on paper, one gets
tricked into feeling interested, all at once, in something one is
saying, and behold, the magic waters are flowing again. Often
it helps to work on a journal, since that allows the writer to
write about those things that most interest him, yet frees him
of the pressure of achievement and encourages him to develop
a more natural, more personal style. — John Gardner

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Mark Allen Smith

PROLOGUE The client sat in an eight-foot-square room staring at a large one-way mirror that offered a view into flat, smooth darkness. An audio — Mark Allen Smith

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Ally Sheedy

But the fact is, nobody gets off drugs unless they really want to, and I really wanted to. — Ally Sheedy

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Ian McEwan

The age of clear answers was over. So was the age of characters and plots. Despite her journal sketches, she no longer really believed in characters. They were quiant devices that belonged to the nineteenth century. The very concept of character was founded on errors that modern psychology had exposed. Plots too were like rusted machinery whose wheels would no longer turn. A modern novelist could no more write characters and plots than a modern composer could a Mozart symphony. It was thought, perception, sensations that interested her, the conscious mind as a river through time, and how to represent its onward roll, as well as the tributaries that would swell it, and the obstacles that would divert it. If only she could reproduce the clear light of a summer's morning, the sensations of a child standing at a window, the curve and dip of a swallow's flight over a pool of water. The novel of the future would be unlike anything in the past. — Ian McEwan

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Wallace D. Wattles

By going back to your own center you can always find the pure idea of right for every relationship. — Wallace D. Wattles

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By May Sarton

In the novel or the journal you get the journey. In a poem you get the arrival. — May Sarton

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Meg Cabot

I wish I could say when Michael's dark eyes met mind, I was completely cool and collected about seeing him again after all this time, and that I laughed airily and said all the right things. I wish I could say after having pretty much single-handedly brought democracy to a country I happen to be a princess of, and written a four-hundred-page romance novel, and gotten into every college to which I applied (even if it's just because I'm a princess), that I handled meeting Michael for the first time again after throwing my snowflake necklace in his face almost two years ago with total grace and aplomb.
But I totally didn't. — Meg Cabot

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Meg Cabot

Inside the envelope with the letter was a little Princess Leia action figure USB flash drive. (they make these?) For me to store my novel on, since he was right-I never back up my computer's hard drive.
The sight of it-it's Princess Leia in her Hoth outfit, my favorite of her costumes (how had he remembered?) brought tears to my eyes. — Meg Cabot

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Jean Chatzky

You have no control over the market. You can't predict where it will go, and you can't bring it back from the depths. What you can do is save more. Make sure you have cash on hand - an emergency fund of at least six months of expenses. — Jean Chatzky

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Cris Mazza

That's the difference between a real journal and one that's invented for a novel - a novel journal has to be manipulated so someone reading it can have enough comprehension, which means the person writing it would've had to have a sense of a someday-audience. — Cris Mazza

Journal Of A Novel Quotes By Tom Robbins

I don't think that a novel is supposed to be a guide book to happiness any more than it's supposed to be a journal of one's personal pain and frustration, which most novels are today, unfortunately. I think the novels that are most important are those that are more on the order of those coyotes that howl on the hills outside of town. Something mysterious and wild and hypnotic. — Tom Robbins
