|Buy my books or the dog gets it!|
A good writer is basically a storyteller, not a scholar or a redeemer of mankind.
—Isaac B. Singer
Keep a notebook. Travel with it, eat with it, sleep with it. Slap into it every stray thought that flutters up in your brain. Cheap paper is less perishable than gray matter, and lead pencil markings endure longer than memory.
To finish is sadness to a writer—a little death. He puts the last word down and it is done.
When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.
The job of the artist is to remind people of what they have chosen to forget.
The best stories don’t come from good vs. bad but from good vs. good.
