Writing Quotes by Anne Tyler

A collection of Writing Quotes by Anne Tyler

I can never tell ahead of time which book will give me trouble - some balk every step of the way, others seem to write themselves - but certainly the mechanics of writing, finding the time and the psychic space, are easier now that my children are grown.

It seems to me that since I've had children, I've grown richer and deeper. They may have slowed down my writing for a while, but when I did write, I had more of a self to speak from.

The one ironclad rule is that I have to try. I have to walk into my writing room and pick up my pen every weekday morning.

My writing day has grown shorter as I've aged, although it seems to produce the same number of pages.

If I waited till I felt like writing, I'd never write at all.
