There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly; sometimes it's like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.
The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.
Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.
Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished? Yes, work never begun.
What people are ashamed of usually makes a good story.
——F. Scott Fitzgerald
A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper.
Because in the end, you won't remember the time you spent in your office or mowing the lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain now.

Whether or not you write well, write bravely.
Description begins in the writer’s imagination, but should finish in the reader's.
Fairy tales are more than true not because they tell us that dragons exist but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
Creativity is an act of defiance.
All writers have this vague hope that the elves will come in the night and finish any stories.
If you can tell stories, create characters, devise incidents, and have sincerity and passion, it doesn't matter a damn how you write.
—W. Somerset Maugham
A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children isn't a good children's story in the slightest.
Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.
