I Write Quotes
- Page 9
I write books to find out about things.
When I write a poem, I go into a state of self-forgetfulness, and something higher takes over; I like to call it my best self.
I write most of my songs when I'm in a bad mood.
Every life of a character is within a context. If I write detached from a social and political background, my story looks like a soap opera where everybody is indoors, not working and living off their emotions.
I usually write things in my head before I ever write them down. When I write it out, usually I've already figured out what it is I'm trying to do.
I write with a pen and paper. Never on a laptop.
There's basically an element of fiction in everything you remember. Imagination and memory are almost the same brain processes. When I write fiction, I know that I'm using a bunch of lies that I've made up to create some form of truth. When I write a memoir, I'm using true elements to create something that will always be somehow fictionalized.
What we call the 'world' and the 'universe' is only one frequency range in an infinite number sharing the same space. The interdimensional entities I write about are able to move between these frequencies or dimensions and manipulate our lives.
Everything I write tends to turn into a superhero team, even if I didn't mean for it to. I always start off wanting to be solitary, because a) it's simpler, and b) that isolation is something that I relate to as a storyteller. And then no matter what, I always end up with a team.
Why do you think I write these feminist songs, to try and teach myself to respect myself. You know, it's not because I'm a hero.
I write until the first draft is finished, and then I feel that I can get out. But, during the time of the writing of the first draft, I don't go out. I'm just locked away, writing. It's a time of meditation, of going into the story.
It just happens I write fast and always have done.
Oh, I will always be honest with my music. The records are black boxes for me. Like if you want to know who I am, my views, my perspective, things I love, things I hate, my convictions, my anthems. I've never let people's opinions affect the way I write.
Some people play the piano, some do Sudoku, some watch television, some people go out to dinner parties. I write books.
In every song I write, whether it's a love song or a political song or a song about family, the one thing that I find is feeling lost and trying to find your way.
Billie Joe Armstrong
I paint and I draw and I write and I do other things too, and recently some people at school were asking if I'd ever publish any of my work. But I almost feel like I would have to publish it under another name because there's a definition of me out there that feels kind of stuck in the moment when it was formed.
I used to think, 'How can I write my life story? I'm still living it.'
I'm not in any rush. I'm not somebody who, if I write a song, I get it out. That's not something I've ever really quite done.
It's very important to write things down instantly, or you can lose the way you were thinking out a line. I have a rule that if I wake up at 3 in the morning and think of something, I write it down. I can't wait until morning - it'll be gone.
I write very, very slowly, and for me, I have to summon all sorts of resources to make one of these pieces work.
I never do any television without chocolate. That's my motto and I live by it. Quite often I write the scripts and I make sure there are chocolate scenes. Actually I'm a bit of a chocolate tart and will eat anything. It's amazing I'm so slim.
As I experience life and go through things, that's what I write about.
Sometimes I wish I was poetic and subtle. I write very bold and blunt and tell it like it is.
I write in longhand and assemble lots of notes, and then I try to collate them into a coherent chronology. It's like groping along in the dark. I like writing and find it challenging, but I don't find it easy.
Joyce Carol Oates
Ignorance breeds antipathy. Until I got to know how computers worked, I didn't want anything to do with them. I said, 'Well, why do I need them? I write letters.' Which I still do.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
