Quotation – November 7, 2017

All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.

Ernest Hemingway

Quotation – November 3, 2017

There is no finer form of fiction than the mystery. It has structure, a storyline and a sense of place and pace. It is the one genre where the reader and the writer are pitted against each other. Readers don’t want to guess the ending, but they don’t want to be so baffled that it annoys them…The research you do is crucial. In mystery fiction, you have to tell the truth. You can’t fool the reader and expect to get away with it.

Sue Grafton
