“My aim is to put down what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way I can tell it.” – Ernest Hemingway
“Writing for me is just like building a chair, making an artifact. The idea is that you build, create a story and cobble it together. If it stands up, that’s good. If it stands up, it’s comfortable, it’s a good story, a good chair.” – Scott Smith
“A great story is life, with the dull parts taken out.” – Alfred Hitchcock
“Easy reading is damn hard writing.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne
“Good writing is more about graft and craft than inspiration and aspiration.” – Johnny Rich
