The conscious mind is the editor, and the subconscious mind is the writer.
My advice is not to wait to be struck by an idea. If you’re a writer, you sit down and damn well decide to have an idea.
On Twitter, there exists a popular hashtag: #amwriting. Every time I see it, I want to yell: no you’re not!
The more you read, the more you will write. The better the stuff you read, the better the stuff you will write.
The glory of a good tale is that it is limitless and fluid; a good tale belongs to each reader in its own particular way.
Your audience is one single reader. I have found that sometimes it helps to pick out one person-a real person you know, or an imagined person-and write to that one.
The best work that anybody ever writes is the work that is on the verge of embarrassing him, always.
You want to be a writer? A writer is someone who writes every day — so start writing.
