Quote of the Day: Stephen King

When your story is ready for rewrite, cut it to the bone. Get rid of every ounce of excess fat. This is going to hurt; revising a story down to the bare essentials is always a little like murdering children, but it must be done.

Quote of the Day: Stephen King

You can approach the act of writing with nervousness, excitement, hopefulness, or even despair – the sense that you can never completely put on the page what’s in your mind and heart.  You can come to the act with your fists clenched and your eyes narrowed, ready to kick ass and take down names.  You can come to it because you want a girl to marry you or because you want to change the world.  Come to it any way but lightly.  Let me say it again: you must not come lightly to the blank page.

Quote of the Day: Stephen King

If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot… Reading is the creative center of a writer’s life… You cannot hope to sweep someone else away by the force of your writing until it has been done to you.
