I try to create sympathy for my characters, then turn the monsters loose.

Stephen King

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

Ernest Hemingway

Most writers regard the truth as their most valuable possession, and therefore are most economical in its use.

Mark Twain

If you can tell stories, create characters, devise incidents, and have sincerity and passion, it doesn’t matter a damn how you write.

Somerset Maugham

It is perfectly okay to write garbage—as long as you edit brilliantly.

C. J. Cherryh

It took me fifteen years to discover I had no talent for writing, but I couldn’t give it up because by that time I was too famous.

Robert Benchley

A blank piece of paper is God’s way of telling us how hard it to be God.

Sidney Sheldon

Not that the story need be long, but it will take a long while to make it short.

Henry David Thoreau

Words are a lens to focus one’s mind.

Ayn Rand

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

Douglas Adams

Science fiction writers, I am sorry to say, really do not know anything.

Philip K. Dick

Half my life is an act of revision.

John Irving

I went for years not finishing anything. Because, of course, when you finish something you can be judged.

Erica Jong

Rejection slips, or form letters, however tactfully phrased, are lacerations of the soul, if not quite inventions of the devil—but there is no way around them.

Isaac Asimov

Fiction is about stuff that’s screwed up.
