Some quotes about writing

“Writing is… being able to take something whole and fiercely alive that exists inside you in some unknowable combination of thought, feeling, physicality, and spirit, and then store it like a genie in tense, tiny black symbols on a calm white page.” 
– Mary Gaitskill
 
“I am aware of being in a beautiful prison, from which I can only escape by writing.”
– Anaïs Nin
 
“For me, writing is like a little hole in reality that you can go through and you can get out and you can be someplace else for a while.”
– Stephen King
 
“When I’m writing, I’m waiting to see somebody, and I’m waiting to hear them. It’s almost like conjuring spirits out of the air, using your own imaginative instability.”
– Charles Baxter
 
Language is power… language can be used as a means of changing reality.
– Adrienne Rich
