Hello, I'm Quinn and I like magic.

I wrote a book called "The Remarkable Inventions of Walter Mortinson." It has quite a bit of magic in it, so I think it's pretty good (I hope you like it too).

You can read it April 2, 2019, from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers.

He asked us then to imagine that we each housed two separate, rivaling brains: a "Writing Brain" and an "Editing Brain." The Writing Brain's job is simply to create; to spew out as many words as possible with complete disregard of quality. The Editing Brain's job is to come in after the Writing Brain is finished and clean it all up; it is to be self-aware and critical. Their roles are opposites and should they try to work at the same time, then they will stifle each other.

You will never be able to write freely if you are constantly worrying about your writing not being good enough. You will never edit effectively if you are constantly adding to and/or dramatically changing your work.

So, when I write, I make and effort to switch on my Writing Brain and let it work itself all the way through a project, only after I'm completely finished with a draft do I switch on my Editing Brain. Often I find myself accidentally editing too soon and inevitably it mucks everything up.(less)

Douglas Adams
“So what do we do if we get bitten by something deadly?' I asked.
He looked at me as if I were stupid.
'You die, of course. That's what deadly means.”
Douglas Adams, Last Chance to See

Tim O'Brien
“A lie, sometimes, can be truer than the truth, which is why fiction gets written.”
Tim O'Brien

David Walliams
“In Britain, a cup of tea is the answer to every problem.
Fallen off your bicycle? Nice cup of tea.
Your house has been destroyed by a meteorite? Nice cup of tea and a biscuit.
Your entire family has been eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex that has travelled through a space/time portal? Nice cup of tea and a piece of cake. Possibly a savoury option would be welcome here too, for example a Scotch egg or a sausage roll.”
David Walliams, Mr Stink

Roald Dahl
“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”
Roald Dahl, The Twits

Neil Gaiman
“I don't want whatever I want. Nobody does. Not really. What kind of fun would it be if I just got everything I ever wanted just like that, and it didn't mean anything? What then?”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline
