  • Writing is something warm and dependable to snuggle up to when everything else is in flux. It's a little secret that you carry with you in public — the knowledge that you alone have the ability to escape to a wonderland where you can make anything happen.

  • ... many writers believe in arrival without leaving home. They believe in talent but not skill.

  • In the end, the difference between a published writer and an unpublished one comes down to one thing: The unpublished writer gave up, and the published writer didn't.

  • Only the unique is universal.

  • What I use from my own life is not the facts, it's the emotion. It's how I felt about something. It has nothing to do with facts at all. You can get those anywhere. It's the feelings of childhood that you need to know.
