 “Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for.” ~Ray Bradbury

“I think it’s fairly common for writers to be afflicted with two simultaneous yet contradictory delusions, the burning certainty that we’re unique geniuses, and the constant fear that we’re witless frauds who are speeding toward epic failure.”

~Scott Lynch

“You can tell a book is real when your heart beats faster. Real books make you sweat. Cry, if no one is looking. Real books help you make sense of your crazy life. Real books tell it true, don’t hold back and make you stronger. But most of all, real books give you hope. Because it’s not always going to be like this and books-the good ones, the ones-show you how to make it better. Now.”

~Laurie Halse Anderson

“Find a subject you care about and which you in your heart feel others should care about. It is this genuine caring, and not your games with language, which will be the most compelling and seductive element in your style. I am not urging you to write a novel, by the way — although I would not be sorry if you wrote one, provided you genuinely cared about something. A petition to the mayor about a pothole in front of your house or a love letter to the girl next door will do.” ~Kurt Vonnegut

“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”

“The first step is to find out what you love — and don’t be practical about it. The second step is to start doing what you love immediately, in any small way possible. I’ve seen what happens to people when they get to do what they love.  They light up. They glow. They have a kind of energy that’s wonderful.”

~Barbara Sher
