Keep writing until the story is told, then keep looking until you find someone who believes in it as strongly as you do. It always seems impossible until the moment it's done!(less)

What would this one look like if roles were reversed? And when one of those flights of fancy takes hold of me and won't let go, I know I've got a story.(less)

“Life is just too short to spend it tearing things down. The question that we all need to ask ourselves is: what do we want to build?”
Charles Kowalski, Mind Virus

“The writers I most enjoy reading, even in gritty, down-to-earth genres, have a touch of the poet in them; they can create original, evocative images and make words do things they hadn’t known they could. Writing my first novel left me feeling that the most important quality for a writer is empathy, the ability to see the world through the eyes of someone from a vastly different background. Especially, to create engaging villains, you have to see how the world makes sense from their point of view, even if it’s the polar opposite of yours. For me, a good villain is one who makes the reader ask, “If I had the same experience as this person, can I be absolutely sure I wouldn’t have done the same things?”
Charles Kowalski

“Forget what they say about “write what you know.” Write what excites your imagination, and the knowledge you need can be acquired. And if a story grabs hold of you and won’t let go . . . tell it! Pay no attention to the inner voices that say “this is no good” or “no one else will be interested in it.” Believe in yourself, even when it feels like no one else does.”
Charles Kowalski
