The writing is decent, but I'm a new-Who girl, and many of the essays were about classic Who, and that went over my head. I haven't had time to explore it, nor any spin off books or magazines. It's not a bad book, this just wasn't good timing for me, ...more

This book was amazing! Huge reminder that what I was doing all along was right. I just needed to tweak a few things and just... wow. That's all I can say. Loved this.
Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
"Before I begin this review, I want to say I read the book twice. Yes, twice. And it is just as silly, exasperating, nonsensical, and ridiculous the second time around. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it, because (up to a point) I did. It’s absolu..." Read more of this review »

Most stories are well written, just... not my cup of tea, I guess.

“I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep & there are no words for that.”
Brian Andreas, Story People: Selected Stories & Drawings of Brian Andreas

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.”

“The object isn't to make art, it's to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable.”

Hugh MacLeod
“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the 'creative bug' is just a wee voice telling you, 'I'd like my crayons back, please.”
