When you start to understand that writing is a practice, not a chore, you automatically begin to come to that place of writing each day. It helps to be consistent, but all writers are different. Finding what works for you and sticking to it is more important than following the age-old advice of "write every day." (less)

Often it's something unexpected, something I never would have seen in my work. I think literature is interpretable for a reason, so that readers can find meaning that might help them in some way.(less)

Quotes by Holly Walrath  (?)

“We live in a world of unfulfilled fairytales.”
Holly Walrath, Glimmerglass Girl

“Each day Marda gets closer. The sub circles coral reefs off the coasts, where mermaids are said to like the colors of the schools of fishes, and train them to swim around their necks like jewelry or live behind their ears, beneath their long hair. Sometimes mermaids like shallow places, but mostly they like the dark and the beautiful, uncharted, abandoned, soulless parts of the undiscovered world.”
Holly Walrath, Pulp Literature Issue 7 Summer 2015

“But he goes all quiet. His ghost eyes roll / up in his head, white-on-white-on-white, / and he runs his shaking hands over his scars, / looks up like he’s going to wish on a / star.”
Holly Walrath, The 2017 Rhysling Anthology: The best science fiction, fantasy & horror poetry of 2016 selected by the Science Fiction Poetry Association
