Writing is my profession, and like any other career, my job is to get up and go to work. It's my responsibility to show up every day and make those words happen; no one is going to do it for me.

I believe writer's block is an excuse writers use to let them off the hook for the day. Plumbers don't get plumber's block. The best way to break through a tough day's creativity is to keep going. I've always found that as long as I keep trying, the words will come.(less)

“Every space movie has a nutjob on the space ship, Henry says. And until you kill the nutjob, everybody's in danger.”
Jason Gurley, The Man Who Ended the World

Aravind Adiga
“Apparently, sir you Chinese are far ahead of us in every respect, except that you don’t have entrepreneurs. And our nation, though it has no drinking water, electricity, sewage system, public transportation, sense of hygiene, discipline, courtesy, or punctuality, ‘’does’’ have entrepreneurs. Thousands and thousands of them. Especially in the field of technology. And these entrepreneurs—"we" entrepreneurs—have set up all these outsourcing companies that virtually run America now.”
Aravind Adiga, The White Tiger

Aravind Adiga
“Out of respect for the love of liberty shown by the Chinese people, and also in the belief that the future of the world lies with the yellow man and the brown man now that our erst-while master, the white-skinned man, has wasted himself through buggery, cell phone usage, and drug abuse, I offer to tell you, free of charge, the truth about Bangalore. By telling you my life’s story.”
Aravind Adiga, The White Tiger

“I am not an original thinker—but I am an original listener.)”
