Inspiration is wonderful when it happens, but the writer must develop an approach for the rest of the time.

Quotation – May 17, 2017

Today is mine. It is unique. Nobody in the world has one exactly like it. It holds the sum of all my past experiences and all my future potential.
I can fill it with joyous memories or ruin it with fruitless worry. If painful recollections of the past come into my mind, or frightening thoughts of the future, I can put them away.
They cannot spoil today for me. It is mine.

The only sense that is common, in the long run, is the sense of change–and we instinctively avoid it.

Quotation – May 14, 2017

The most important thing is you can’t write what you wouldn’t read for pleasure. It’s a mistake to analyze the market thinking you can write whatever is hot. You can’t say you’re going to write romance when you don’t even like it. You need to write what you would read if you expect anybody else to read it.

And you have to be driven. You have to have the three D’s: drive, discipline and desire. If you’re missing any one of those three, you can have all the talent in the world, but it’s going to be really hard to get anything done.

Carpe Diem


Quotation – May 8, 2017

I have never felt like I was creating anything. For me, writing is like walking through a desert and all at once, poking up through the hard pan, I see the top of a chimney. I know there’s a house under there, and I’m pretty sure that I can dig it up if I want. That’s how I feel. It’s like the stories are already there. What they pay me for is the leap of faith that says: ‘If I sit down and do this, everything will come out OK.’

Stephen King

If you’ve never experienced the joy of accomplishing more than you can imagine, plant a garden.
