“This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done. It's that easy, and that hard.”
Neil Gaiman

“Writing is easy. You only need to stare at a blank piece of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead.”
Gene Fowler

“I've found the best way to revise your own work is to pretend that somebody else wrote it and then to rip the living shit out of it.”
