Featured Quotes

“Stop self-editing yourself would be my best suggestion. Be prepared when you get down to the keyboard, because a lot of people don’t know what to write or they take too long to write because they’re struggling over what to write. I don’t think those decisions for the most part should be battled against a blank page; you should be thinking about that before you start writing. I think most people confuse prewriting with actual writing.”

“Authors tend to be in a hurry. They’ve got one book out, they want to go get it, they want the world to read it and celebrate their genius. It’s just not as viable. It makes a lot more sense to be patient, to write the three books, and to put them all out. And be prepared. Like, you know you can write. It’s hard; people will create this book, and then they don’t know how to follow it up. Writing a book isn’t a finish line. It’s the starting gate for your career.”
