Writers get paid for what other people get scolded for—daydreaming.
Maybe the hardest thing in writing is simply to tell the truth about things as we see them.
If you’re a writer, you sit down and damn well decide to have an idea. That’s the way to get an idea.
You want to be a writer? A writer is someone who writes every day — so start.
I do not write with ease, nor am I ever pleased with anything I write. And so I rewrite.
I find that most people don't know what a story is until they sit down to write one.
Never make the mistake of assuming the audience is any less intelligent than you are.
Before you can write anything, you have to notice something.
