We may not always see it but there is indeed something beautiful that exists in each day, we are just not looking close enough.

Maybe it’s not one single moment that changes your life suddenly but a series of events that speak to you telling you who you should be.

Give me raw, brutal honesty any day, but take those sweet lies you tell, far away.

wearing pajamas all day is also a pretty solid perk.

Writing is not magic. It’s a craft, a process, a set of steps. As with any process, things sometimes break down. Even in a good story, the writer runs into problems. So the act of writing always includes problem solving.

Well, I think it’s extraordinarily fun to write, and I look forward to it every day, but that doesn’t mean I think it’s easy. There’s a difference between the two. It’s fun in the way all worthwhile things are fun – there’s difficulty attached to it. I think that a writer has to accept a certain amount of frustration. It’s inherent in the task, and you have to simply persevere. It’s part of the definition of the work.

There is no such thing as a perfect book or a perfect story.
Every book in every library on this planet has something wrong with it. It could be something tiny. Maybe a minor character isn’t well drawn. Maybe a description goes on too long. Maybe the dialogue is stiff in one spot. There’s something wrong with every single one.
No matter how hard we writers try, we will never achieve perfection.
Perfection doesn’t mater No two readers would agree on whether our book was perfect anyway. Besides, readers care less about perfection and more about connection, getting caught up in a story, caring about the characters.
