—Eddie Van Halen
Repeat the mantra: Writing is when I make the words. Editing is when I make them not shitty.

Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should’ve behaved better.
Life is short, Break the Rules.
Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY.
Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably
And never regret ANYTHING that makes you smile.

A book should serve as the ax for the frozen sea within us.
I have found that a story leaves a deeper impression when it is impossible to tell which side the author is on.
Quantity produces quality. If you only write a few things, you're doomed.
