I hail from the US and I like to write...enough about me.

“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”

- G.K. Chesterton

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
― Douglas Adams

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
― Ernest Hemingway

“Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.”
― Lloyd Alexander

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
― Sylvia Plath

“No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.”
― Robert Frost

“Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.”
― E.L. Doctorow

“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
― Philip Pullman

“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”
― Louis L'Amour

“There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.”
― Frank Herbert

“The scariest moment is always just before you start.”
― Stephen King

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.”
― Stephen King

“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.”
― William Wordsworth

“Tomorrow may be hell, but today was a good writing day, and on the good writing days nothing else matters.”
― Neil Gaiman

“let me live, love, and say it well in good sentences”
― Sylvia Plath

“There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you.”
― Beatrix Potter

“You can make anything by writing.”
― C.S. Lewis

“I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I'm afraid of. ”
― Joss Whedon

“You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and the creation of different words on a page. Writing comes from reading, and reading is the finest teacher of how to write.”
― Annie Proulx

“A word after a word after a word is power.”
― Margaret Atwood

“This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done. It's that easy, and that hard.”
― Neil Gaiman
