Writing Dr Seuss Quotes By Dr. Seuss

Writing Dr Seuss Quotes By Dr. Seuss

The problem with writing a book in verse is, to be successful, it has to sound like you knocked it off on a rainy Friday afternoon. It has to sound easy.

Writing Dr Seuss Quotes By Dr. Seuss

Writing simply means no dependent clauses, no dangling things, no flashbacks, and keeping the subject near the predicate. We throw in as many fresh words we can get away with.

Virtually every page is a cliffhanger--you've got to force them to turn it."~ — Dr. Seuss

Writing Dr Seuss Quotes By Jon Scieszka

I always loved strange stories like the Dr. Seuss stuff. 'Go, Dog. Go!' was one of my favorite stories - it still is. It's just such a bizarre yet true book. And I did well reading and writing as a kid throughout school. I think early on that's what made me realize what an advantage that is. — Jon Scieszka

Writing Dr Seuss Quotes By Giles Andreae

I'm not a fan of Dr. Seuss's better-known work, but his fables leave me awe-struck.

Writing Dr Seuss Quotes By Dr. Seuss

Writing Dr Seuss Quotes By Dr. Seuss

It has often been said
there's so much to be read,
you never can cram
all those words in your head.
So the writer who breeds
more words than he needs
is making a chore
for the reader who reads.
That's why my belief is
the briefer the brief is,
the greater the sigh
of the reader's relief is.
And that's why your books
have such power and strength.
You publish with shorth!
(Shorth is better than length.) — Dr. Seuss

Writing Dr Seuss Quotes By Jon Scieszka

I like to tell kids that I started thinking about stories when I first started reading stuff like Dr. Seuss and 'Go, Dog. Go!,' thinking, 'Oh yeah, that's funny. I'd like to do that.' And then writing throughout school, but at the same time I was studying pre-med stuff, because my mom told me I should be a doctor. — Jon Scieszka

Writing Dr Seuss Quotes By Taylor Swift

I would read the Shel Silverstein poems, Dr. Seuss, and I noticed early on that poetry was something that just stuck in my head and I was replaying those rhymes and try to think of my own. In English, the only thing I wanted to do was poetry and all the other kids were like, "Oh, man. We have to write poems again?" and I would have a three-page long poem. I won a national poetry contest when I was in fourth grade for a poem called "Monster In My Closet. — Taylor Swift
