Sterling Lord
“An author’s strong belief and enthusiasm will affect the writing of the book and often the publisher’s commitment to it.”
Sterling Lord, Lord of Publishing: A Memoir

Brian Raif
“Art is the overflow of emotion into action.”
Brian Raif

Mary O'Hara
“Sooner or later every writer evolves his own definition of a story.

Mine is: A reflection of life plus beginning and end (life seems not to have either) and a meaning.”
Mary O'Hara, Een zoele zomer in Wyoming

C.S. Lewis
“In writing. Don't use adjectives which merely tell us how you want us to feel about the thing you are describing. I mean, instead of telling us a thing was "terrible," describe it so that we'll be terrified. Don't say it was "delightful"; make us say "delightful" when we've read the description. You see, all those words (horrifying, wonderful, hideous, exquisite) are only like saying to your readers, "Please will you do my job for me."

[Letter to Joan Lancaster, 26 June 1956]”
C.S. Lewis, Letters to Children

Cormac McCarthy
“Creative work is often driven by pain. It may be that if you don't have something in the back of your head driving you nuts, you may not do anything. It's not a good arrangement. If I were God, I wouldn't have done it that way.

[Interview, The Wall Street Journal, Nov. 20, 2009]”
Cormac McCarthy
