I try to create sympathy for my characters, then turn the monsters loose.
It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.
Most writers regard the truth as their most valuable possession, and therefore are most economical in its use.
If you can tell stories, create characters, devise incidents, and have sincerity and passion, it doesn’t matter a damn how you write.
It is perfectly okay to write garbage—as long as you edit brilliantly.
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.
A blank piece of paper is God’s way of telling us how hard it to be God.
Not that the story need be long, but it will take a long while to make it short.
Words are a lens to focus one’s mind.
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
Science fiction writers, I am sorry to say, really do not know anything.
Half my life is an act of revision.
I went for years not finishing anything. Because, of course, when you finish something you can be judged.
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.
Fiction is about stuff that’s screwed up.
