Cool Tweets for Authors

25 Hand Picked Tweets For Authors

 

 

Not everything here at Nothing Any Good has to be an informative resource for writing and publishing. Sometimes, we all just need to enjoy writing and reading.

I’m a quote lover. I always have been. Long before there were websites chock full of every quote you could imagine, I had books of printed quotes. This love of quotes probably comes from my Dad. He is a university professor and he has posted quotes on printed paper all over his office. He’s done this for years.

Since I love a strong quote and twitter seems to be infatuated with quotes, I want to make this easy for you. If you’re ever looking for a good quote to share about writing but you don’t know what to share, here’s some cool quotes you can share. Just click to tweet them.

    I love all of these quotes, Dan, including several I’d never read before now. During my 31 years as a high school English teacher here in Pittsburgh, I had a poster on my classroom wall with a quote from Justice Louis Brandeis: There is no such thing as good writing, just good rewriting. I always stressed the importance of that to my students as they wrote their compositions for me, and I’ve always kept it in mind in my second career as a writer as I write my mystery novels.

    As always, best of luck!

      That’s a great quote, Bob! I’ve always enjoyed that one. Here’s two other quotes about editing that didn’t make the cut, but that I enjoy:

      It is perfectly okay to write garbage—as long as you edit brilliantly. – C. J. Cherryh

      “Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.” ― T.S. Eliot
