This helps prevent writers block because I don't become out of touch with my characters or their situations. The trick in doing this is to not concern yourself with a high word court or even the quality of your writing (that's what editing is all about). My focus is to write 300 words a day. I got this piece of advice from Stephen King and hey he knows what he's talking about. (less)

The Haunting by Ruby Jean Jensen
"I was surprised to see the amount of the depth in this novel. Tackling sexism and grief especially. I loved the characters. I also loved the sense of horror through-out and the creepy atmosphere.

My one real complaint is it felt heavy-handed with..." Read more of this review »

Terry Pratchett
“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

Terry Pratchett
“God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e. everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.”
Terry Pratchett, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch

Stephen King
“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Stephen King
“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”
Stephen King, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption: A Story from Different Seasons

“Horror was rooted in sympathy . . . in understanding what it would be like to suffer the worst.”
Joe Hill, Heart-Shaped Box
