J.K. Rowling
“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
J.K.Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Flannery O'Connor
“I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say.”
Flannery O'Connor

Rebecca Solnit
“In the fall of 2017, we began to consider anew how violence, hate, and discrimination push people out, and how the stories we have are haunted by the ghosts of the stories we never got.”
Rebecca Solnit, Call Them by Their True Names: American Crises

Bobbie Ann Mason
“One day I was counting the cats and I absent-mindedly counted myself.”
Bobbie Ann Mason, Shiloh and Other Stories

Ira Glass
“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
Ira Glass
