“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”
“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There’s no way around these two things that I’m aware of, no shortcut.”
“Let me say it again: You must not come lightly to the blank page.”
