Some books come to you…. They are bonuses, gifts. You do not have to kill some little part of your flesh to dredge them up. This is a fatal shade mystical, but it is almost as if you are serving as agent for a book which wants to get itself written.

As children, some of us liked magic and fantasy, more than reality. So, we became writers.

A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author. ~G.K. Chesterton
Every writer I know has trouble writing.
