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.
Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.
Write what disturbs you, what you fear, what you have not been willing to speak about. Be willing to be split open.
Be willing and unafraid to write badly, because often the bad stuff...forms a base on which to build something better.
Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.
