William Faulkner on Writing

Get inspired by the world's best writers.
Quotes illustration
“Read, read, read. Read everything  —  trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it. Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”

“The work never matches the dream of perfection the artist has to start with.”
