How to use writing in a sentence?

  1. Vice President Biden:

    The papers from my Senate years that I donated to the University of Delaware do not contain personnel files, it is the practice of Senators to establish a library of personal papers that document their public record : speeches, policy proposals, positions taken, and the writing of bills.

  2. CLIFFORD VILLALON:

    The ink of any pen has no control of its writing. If you are using a pencil, don’t use the eraser. It is not made for writing.

  3. Robert Durst:

  4. Sophia Loren:

    Getting ahead in a difficult profession -- singing, acting, writing, whatever -- requires avid faith in yourself. You must be able to sustain yourself against staggering blows and unfair reversals. When I think back to those first couple of years in Rome, those endless rejections, without a glimmer of encouragement from anyone, all those failed screen tests, and yet I never let my desire slide away from me, my belief in myself and what I felt I could achieve.

  5. Jessamyn West:

    Writing is a solitary occupation. Family, friends, and society are the natural enemies of the writer. He must be alone, uninterrupted, and slightly savage if he is to sustain and complete an undertaking.
