“You can fix anything but a blank page.” – Nora Roberts

“You will write if you will write without thinking of the result in terms of a result, but think of the writing in terms of discovery, which is to say that creation must take place between the pen and the paper, not before in a thought or afterwards in a recasting…It will come if it is there and if you will let it come.” – Gertrude Stein

“I have always had more dread of a pen, a bottle of ink, and a sheet of paper than of a sword or pistol.” – Alexandre Dumas
