Writing is an Extreme Privilege

 

Writing is an extreme privilege but it’s also a gift. It’s a gift to yourself and it’s a gift of giving a story to someone.

Amy Tan

 

It’s political correctness gone mad!

 

Yeah, it’s all political correctness gone mad!
Let’s not piss anyone off by pissing everyone off. That’ll work.

Damian Darrha Manx, NextYorkCity, 2202AD

 

Fiction is the truth…

— Stephen King - "On Writing"
 

Fiction is the truth inside the lie.

Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It’s about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.

Stephen King

 

What really knocks me out…

J.D. Salinger
 

What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.

J.D. Salinger

 

Sit down and bleed…

Ernest Hemingway
 

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

Ernest Hemingway
