“To be successful you must have talent joined with the willingness, the eagerness, to work like a dog. I write seven days a week from ten until four, and I begrudge every minute I have to spend on the phone or away from my typewriter. Also, you've got to be willing to take a chance on something that could be unsuccessful. Thousands of people plan to be writers, but they never get around to it.

Work every day and the pages will pile up.”
