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
