Quotes by Writers Stephen King and Phillip Roth

Stephen King said, “The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”

Phillip Roth said, “The road to hell is paved with works-in-progress.”Road



  1. I’ve quit (for the most part) using adverbs in my fiction. As for works in progress, my memoir has been that for about 8 years now. Someday I’ll finish it and move on from the past… permanently (sigh)

    • Hi Tammy, I know what you mean. For six years, part time, I edited my novel and finally I had to put it away for a while. I needed to write something fresh. I know I’ll go back to it because six years, as you know, is a big time investment. For now, I’m enjoying writing a paranormal mystery for the first time. Good luck finishing your project.

  2. I think they’re both right and I have an abundance of both roads.
