Sometimes I need to change directions, work on a different aspect, begin writing something completely off topic. Turn to journalling or blogging or poetry. Switch channels. Go for a walk. Switch genres. Focus on a different character. Read something. Talk to someone. Breathe.(less)

Innocence by Dean Koontz
“So you want to help me,” she said. “Yes. Whatever I can do to help you.” “No one can help me,” she declared with no slightest indication of bitterness or despair. “Only one person could ever help me, and he’s dead. You will die, too, if you associate with me, and you’ll die cruelly.” 12 I STOOD IN THE SHADOWS SHORT OF DICKENS, SHE in the lamplight, and I saw that her fingernails were painted black and that tattooed on the backs of her hands were curled blue lizards with forked red tongues.”
Dean Koontz

“It's a god-eat-god world" - katya”
Katya Mills

“Now I happened to be there, in the chewy maelstrom of his life, by his side. He taught me how to live in this fucked up environment. East Oakland. How to deal with the people. Which ones to avoid. The new currency was trading out what you have for what you need. And then maybe trading up for what you want. The new time was not told by the sun. Light or no light, we lived as things happened. I would soon realize there was no other way.”
Katya Mills, Grand Theft Life

“poisoning the environment by the littering of consequence.”
Katya Mills, Grand Theft Life

“Negative words other than not are usually strong:”
William Strunk Jr., The Elements Of Style

“It's a god-eat-god world" - katya”

“None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.”
Anne Rice, The Vampire Lestat

“Das war ein seltsamer Raum, hergerichtet in einem einzigen Stile: bizarre Künstlerlaune. Etrurische und japanische Vasen, spanische Fächer und Dolche, chinesische Schirme und italienische Mandolinen, afrikanische Muschelhörner und kleine antike Statuen, bunte Rokkoko-Nippes und wächserne Madonnen, alte Kupferstiche und Arbeiten aus Meysenberg eigenem Pinsel, - das alles war im ganzen Raum auf Tischen, Etagèren, Konsolen und an den Wänden, welche überdies gleich dem Fußboden mit dicken orientalischen Teppichen und verblichenen gestickten Seidenstoffen bedeckt waren, in schreienden Zusammenstellungen arrangiert, welche gleichsam auf sich selbst mit Fingern wiesen.”
Thomas Mann

“Always mystify, torture, mislead, and surprise the audience as much as possible.”
Don Roff
