“we write every day, we fight every day, we think and scheme and dream a little dream every day. manuscripts pile up in the kitchen sink, run-on sentences dangle around our necks. we plant purple prose in our gardens and snip the adverbs only to thread them in our hair. we write with no guarantees, no certainties, no promises of what might come and we do it anyway. this is who we are.”
Tahereh Mafi

“So much of what we read nowadays is there one moment and gone the next. When you read something good, cherish it.”

“Be kind to people and don’t judge, for you do not know what demons they carry and what battles they are fighting.”
Vashti Quiroz-Vega

“Don’t turn your face away.
Once you’ve seen, you can no longer act like you don’t know.
Open your eyes to the truth. It’s all around you.
Don’t deny what the eyes to your soul have revealed to you.

Now that you know, you cannot feign ignorance.
Now that you’re aware of the problem, you cannot pretend you don’t care.
To be concerned is to be human.
To act is to care.”
Vashti Quiroz-Vega

“Words! What power they hold. Once they have rooted in your psyche, it is difficult to escape them. Words can shape the future of a child and destroy the existence of an adult.
Words are powerful. Be careful how you use them because once you have pronounced them, you cannot remove the scar they leave behind.”
Vashti Quiroz-Vega

“Writing is a lonely job. Having someone who believes in you makes a lot if difference. They don't have to makes speeches. Just believing is usually enough.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“Kill your darlings, kill your darlings, even when it breaks your egocentric little scribbler’s heart, kill your darlings.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“It's none of their business that you have to learn how to write. Let them think you were born that way.”
Ernest Hemingway

“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

“It is the writer who might catch the imagination of young people, and plant a seed that will flower and come to fruition.”
Isaac Asimov
