Good artists borrow, great artists steal
The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean.
—Robert Louis Stevenson
Write freely and as rapidly as possible and throw the whole thing on paper. Never correct or rewrite until the whole thing is down.
Being a real writer means being able to do the work on a bad day.
Write. Then write some more. And never be afraid to revise, scrap, or take criticism. That's the only way to learn…
The worst enemy of creativity is self-doubt.
You fail only if you stop writing.
You can't blame a writer for what the characters say.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
—George Bernard Shaw
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
