Young Writers


Unfortunately many young writers are more concerned with fame than with their own work... It's much more important to write than to be written about. ~Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Not familiar with Marquez (I did click on your link to his bio, though), but this is a wonderful quote.

We all would do well if we remembered this concept in all walks of life; humility.

I like this! Amen. Like Biko we should just write what we like.

Maquez is right, Getzapped! So very right. And a real writer finds this truth along the way.
Hey, have you started your Writers' & Artists' series already? :-)
