I’ve got 99 problems, and being a person bursting with ideas and Big Questions but too tired to write is one of them.

 

If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.

You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.

-Ray Bradbury

 

A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word to paper.

-E.B. White

 

The writer’s job is to get the main character up a tree, and then once they are up there, throw rocks at them.

-Vladimir Nabokov

 

Write like it matters, and it will.

-Libba Bray
