“Many people hear voices when no one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing.”
Margaret Chittenden

Junot Díaz
“In order to write the book you want to write, in the end you have to become the person you need to become to write that book.”
Junot Díaz

John Scalzi
“Here's a quick rule of thumb: Don't annoy science fiction writers. These are people who destroy entire planets before lunch. Think of what they'll do to you.”
John Scalzi

Patrick Rothfuss
“Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

Ernest Hemingway
“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
Ernest Hemingway
