Something To Think About

All things make sense; you just have to fathom how they make sense.
~Piers Anthony

I started writing to please myself, a story I would like to read, and that is still true. ~Jean M. Auel

I don't write about things that I have the answers to or things that are very close to home. It just wouldn't be any adventure. It wouldn't have any vitality. ~Ann Beattie

A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others. ~Ayn Rand

It's never too late - in fiction or in life - to revise. ~Nancy Thayer

You have to have a tremendous drive and belief in yourself and you have to live with many, many years of rejection. ~Leon Uris

You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense. ~Rick Warren

I agree with most of these, except maybe not writing close to home. I don't really, not most of the time, but when I do, I learn something.
