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

We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.

It's none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.

John Irving: A writer's job is to imagine everything so personally that the fiction is as vivid as memories.

Sigmund Freud: Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and they will come forth, later, in uglier ways.

Andy M: I am not writing. I am bloodletting...and this is my catharsis

Rachel Thompson: Accept now, before you even start, that some people will hate it. Then again, some will love it. Write for the lovers.

E.L. Doctorow: Planning to write is not writing. Outlining-researching-talking to people about what you're doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing.

Shannon L. Alder: There is always a storm. There is always rain. Some experience it. Some live through it. And others are made from it.

Robert Frost: The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep. And miles to go before I sleep.

Terry Prachett: Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first. And is waiting for it

Lucinda Williams: You can't be afraid to deal with your demons. You've got to go there to be able to write.

Octavia Butler: A good story is a good story. If what I'm writing reaches you, then it reaches you no matter what title is stuck on it.

Arthur Penn: Tap into what you don't want to say. Tap into that secret place, despite the agony...over and above the fatigue

Edgar Allen Poe: The scariest monsters are the ones that lurk within our souls

Stephen King: Monsters are real, and ghosts are real, too. They live inside us. And sometimes, they win.

Story is honorable and trustworthy; plot is shifty, and best kept under house arrest.

Kill your darlings, kill your darlings, even when it breaks your egocentric little scribbler's heart, kill your darlings.

Read and write four to six hours a day. If you cannot find the time for that, you can't expect to become a good writer.

Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.

-We become what we behold. We shape our tools and then they shape us.
