Solid information about the storytelling process. Came across as disconnected, scattered in places, like too much material shoved into a too-small container.

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

Chuck Palahniuk
“Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I've ever known.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

Peter De Vries
“Sometimes I write drunk and revise sober, and sometimes I write sober and revise drunk. But you have to have both elements in creation — the Apollonian and the Dionysian, or spontaneity and restraint, emotion and discipline.”
Peter De Vries, Reuben, Reuben

Niccolò Machiavelli
“I'm not interested in preserving the status quo; I want to overthrow it.”
Machiavelli Niccolo
