“Don't undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible.”
― Edwin Land

Cynthia Leitich Smith
“It's not about you, it's about the story. It's not about the folks who raise an eyebrow because you're not yet published or not yet J.K. Rowling. It's not about what that lady at church may think or, for that matter, the critics. It's not about the fact that you can't please everyone, and it's sure as heck not about the odds. In the immortal words of Gold Five, "Stay on target." You may or may not be the one who destroys the Death Star. But you're a hero if you get out of your own way, put it all on the line, and try.”
Cynthia Leitich Smith

L.K. Madigan
“The main thing is to WRITE. Some days it might be 2000 words. Some days you might tinker with two sentences until you get them just right. Both days belong in the writing life. Some days you may watch a ‘Doctor Who’ marathon or become immersed in a book that is so good you can’t stop reading. Some days you may be in love or in mourning. Those days belong in the writing life, too. Live them without guilt.”
L.K. Madigan

“That was the river, this is the sea.”
Mike Scott

Writers fish for the right words like fishermen fish for, um, whatever those aquatic creatures
“Writers fish for the right words like fishermen fish for, um, whatever those aquatic creatures with fins and gills are called.

Jarod Kintz, This is the best book I've ever written, and it still sucks
