Schizoid Poet: It's nice to know these feelings won't go away. It's nice to know that once I am not so busy I'll still want to write poems about the acidic hate I have for you.

Schizoid Poet: The only thing I was fit for was to be a writer, and this notion rested solely on my suspicion that I would never be fit for real work, and that writing didn't require any.
- Russell Baker

Why do writers write? Because it isn't there.
- Thomas Berger

There is probably no hell for authors in the next world -- they suffer so much from critics and publishers in this.
- C. N. Bovee

Style has always been in my mind the author's Self, the creative expression of that Self.
- Whit Burnett

Finishing a book is just like you took a child out in the back yard and shot it.
- Truman Capote

Everybody walks past a thousand story ideas every day. The good writers are the ones who see five or six of them. Most people don't see any.
- Orson Scott Card

Every great and original writer, in proportion as he is great or original, must himself create the taste by which he is to be relished.
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Books aren't written, they're rewritten. Including your own. It is one of the hardest things to accept, especially after the seventh rewrite hasn't quite done it...
- Michael Crichton

Writers are always selling somebody out.
- Joan Didion

Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
- E. L. Doctorow

Writing is turning one's worst moments into money.
- J. P. Donleavy

Writing is the hardest work in the world. I have been a bricklayer and a truck driver, and I tell you -- as if you haven't been told a million times already -- that writing is harder. Lonelier. And nobler and more enriching.
- Harlan Ellison

The work never matches the dream of perfection the artist has to start with.
- William Faulkner

When writing a novel, that‚??s pretty much entirely what life turns into: 'House burned down. Car stolen. Cat exploded. Did 1500 easy words, so all in all it was a pretty good day.'
- Neil Gaiman

All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.
- Ernest Hemingway

Poets are interested mostly in death and commas.
- Carolyn Kizer

All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.
- George Orwell

Writing is an occupation in which you have to keep proving your talent to those who have none.
- Jules Renard

Every writer is a narcissist. This does not mean that he is vain; it only means that he is hopelessly self-absorbed.
- Leo Rosten

Pay no attention to what the critics say; no statue has ever been erected to a critic.
- Jean Sibelius

Writing is not a profession but a vocation of unhappiness.
- Georges Simenon

Reading and weeping opens the door to one's heart, but writing and weeping opens the window to one's soul.
- M. K. Simmons

There is no idea so stupid or hackneyed that a sufficiently-talented writer can't get a good story out of it.
- Lawrence Watt-Evan

There is no satisfactory explanation of style, no infallible guide to good writing, no assurance that a person who thinks clearly will be able to write clearly, no key that unlocks the door, no inflexible rules by which the young writer may steer his course. He will often find himself steering by stars that are disturbingly in motion.
- E. B. White

For me, writing [was] a question of survival...I could not trust anyone, even my family. The atmosphere was so poisoned. People even in your own family could turn you in.
- Gao Xingjian, refering to writing during the Cultural Revolution of Mao Tse-Tung

A young musician plays scales in his room and only bores his family. A beginning writer, on the other hand, sometimes has the misfortune of getting into print.
- Marguerite Yourcenar

Schizoid Poet: I have to review 756 uses of the word " all" and edit out the errors. Burn. That's Minnesota & SoDak. This is what you get from putting " all" in sentences where it doesn't belong.

    Schizoid Poet: All I ask is for credit where credit is do. This took about eight years to make happen. This is how I am going to spread the message the world needs to hear.
    February 14, 2012 at 1:20AM

Schizoid Poet: To: the people who've plagiarized my work while exploiting the intellectual property of my name for the past six years, specifically in response to this ebook roster and the phenomenon I created:
I am coming for you. This is not acceptable. There is an army of you people named Roze, Rosethis, Rozethat, This Rose, That Roze and 85% of you are ripping me off and aligning with a promise no one ever made you. You could note instances of replicating my idiosyncrasies such as using 'itz,' heavy usage of 'z's, heavy r alliteration, and z names ending in 'o's, to name some. I could trace some form of plagiarism to most of those people. This is a cultural phenomenon I hope you know and it would be nothing without me. The legion of imitators came secondary and I didn‚??t want that. Per say‚?¶ Listen. I am and will forever be the lord of the Rozez and people better never forget it. I know what you‚??re doing. I invented what you‚??re doing. You can‚??t have it. You can‚??t trash it. You can‚??t waste it, because then it‚??s lost. If you insist in persisting, know this; you are jettisons of my supreme knowledge. The single way you benefit me is to prove to people who aren‚??t familiarized why I am more real than money, hype, or traditional methods. I am a legend. No one has done what I‚??ve done. And yeah, I couldn‚??t do it without the internet, but maybe I could, I don‚??t know. Ok. Thank you for the visual aide you provide. The exhibit is helpful and maybe that is what you intended. Still, the flattery of imitation remains minor and the insult major. We‚??ll see where it goes. Realize, Rose is not the most popular name in the universe, but if you investigate the roster of 2011 ebook rosters you would be led to believe otherwise. There is a world record in there waiting to be acknowledged. I haven‚??t processed this issue fully yet. It is not a new discovery. I watched this grow since 05. This is a declaration of intent. Maybe it is my fault for pushing the world away, but such are thorns. No. You didn‚??t want to be my friends. You wanted glory, and that‚??s not what it‚??s about. Not for you anyway. Perhaps you think you represent something about me but you do not. You‚??re a byproduct. We‚??re growing in the same rose bush, but I am the root and you are the blossoms. I am an effective artist. I am a skilled thinker and understand causality. My name is Rose. It always has been. I am a good writer because I did the work to become one. I did not produce waste and pawn it off as an awakening in the theft of an author‚??s identity. I could have written short stories and been in the magazines. I chose novels because I have integrity. And now where is the glory? All I have are imitators. This is my one demand, respect. It doesn‚??t matter if you‚??re in an office running a publishing house, you‚??re writer in some minor facet, if you‚??re working for the money and need to make a bottom line, a singer, an actor, a porn star, or whoever(activists are the chosen artists and may do whatever they‚??d like). I‚??m going to target the people who can get me the recognition I deserve, namely publication. If new seeds can‚??t take root, because the land is too infertile, because there are too many of you, I‚??ll do the same thing I did to create you to destroy you. That‚??s life. Have a nice day rosebuds. Don‚??t forget, I don‚??t need you, because a rose by any other name writes just as well. What‚??s your real name?

    William Walz: Could you please repeat that.
    January 18, 2012 at 9:30AM

Schizoid Poet: Imitation is not the best form of flattery. Imitation ensures you'll never be flattered because by being yourself you'll look like you're copying people.
January 16, 2012 at 12:49AM

Schizoid Poet: People are full of surprises. Remember that when developing characters.
January 7, 2012 at 10:04PM

Schizoid Poet: My words cut through me, like cold through the van on windy nights.

Schizoid Poet: There is a term in writing that applies to revolution; high concept.
March 1, 2010 at 1:12AM

Schizoid Poet: Attempting to lose my name for a while. This site isn't making that task any easier.
December 2, 2009 at 2:22AM
    Savithree: a good appreciation indeed.
