Three things are important if you want to write, says Madeleine L’Engle QUOTES FOR WRITERS

diary
I have advice for people who want to write. I don’t care whether they’re 5 or 500. There are three things that are important: First, if you want to write, you need to keep an honest, unpublishable journal that nobody reads, nobody but you. Where you just put down what you think about life, what you think about things, what you think is fair and what you think is unfair. And second, you need to read. You can’t be a writer if you’re not a reader. It’s the great writers who teach us how to write. The third thing is to write. Just write a little bit every day. Even if it’s for only half an hour — write, write, write.
Madeleine L’Engle

      Must admit I’ve never done number 1. Have you? Does it help your other writing, the stuff you want to do, the stories in your head that itch to be written?
