Onward Towards Bloomability: A Few Tips From the Masters

“There are so many different kinds of writing and so many ways to work that the only rule is this: do what works. Almost everything has been tried and found to succeed for somebody. The methods, even the ideas of successful writers contradict each other in a most heartening way, and the only element I find common to all successful writers is persistence-an overwhelming determination to succeed.”
Sophy Burnham

“Write from the soul, not from some notion what you think the marketplace wants. The market is fickle; the soul is eternal.”
Jeffrey A. Carver

“One must be drenched in words, literally soaked in them, to have the right ones form themselves into the proper patterns at the right moment.”
Hart Crane, American Poet (1899-1932)

“A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us.”
Franz Kafka

“You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.”
Jack London
