The Writing Tools of 20 Famous Authors – Flavorwire.

As someone who has written longhand (and not really that keen on it) I appreciated this look at how writers write – the actual physical process itself. Especially since I’ve just jumped on the Scrivener bandwagon.

That all said, the Levenger catalog still qualifies as writer porn and if you find yourself in Vegas, there’s a pen shop over at the Wynn with pens only about half the writers in this list could afford.

21 Harsh But Eye-Opening Writing Tips From Great Authors

This is a great list of quotes.

It’s interesting to me that because most everyone learns to write at some point in their lives, just to exist in society, they all think they can be “writers.” Telling a story with words is a completely different skill set than just being able to convey a simple message but most people don’t see it that way. they figure that since they can string words together for an 8th grade English class (Thank you, Mrs. Mullally) that they can write a book or even a short story, and a good one at that, right out of the gate.

Writing is work. Like all work sometimes it’s hard, sometimes it’s easier, but it always takes effort to get good at it and these quotes just point that out.

Famous Authors’ Handwritten Outlines for Great Works of Literature

This is a great glimpse into process but as I sit down today to outline my new writing project, I sit down with a computer and a tablet and a piece of software designed to make these notes. There are places and slots for all these notes.

It’s like email. We still have correspondence, sure, but there’s something sad about not having the “Collected letters of ….” to look forward to anymore. At least the art itself lives on.
