21 Harsh But Eye-Opening Writing Tips From Great Authors

Fellow Writers,

I came across this intriguing article that contains 21 quotes about writing from some of the most prolific writers

The post title says it all: some of these are really harsh, but they're accurate. 

Some of my favorites were:

 I would advise anyone who aspires to a writing career that before developing his talent he would be wise to develop a thick hide. — Harper Lee

You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club. ― Jack London

Remember: when people tell you something’s wrong or doesn’t work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong. – Neil Gaiman

 Don’t take anyone’s writing advice too seriously.– Lev Grossman

Those were some of my favorites. All of the rest were incredible as well. Which ones did you like? Go to their site and check it out.

I'm especially finding that when people tell you exactly how to fix something, they are in fact usually wrong. A brilliant quote. 

Do you agree with these quotes? Why or Why not?
