"Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for."

— Ray Bradbury

Wordcrafts' Quotes

Reader's Exhaustion

"A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.”

— William Styron

Excess Baggage

“The author makes a tacit deal with the reader. You hand them a backpack. You ask them to place certain things in it — to remember, to keep in mind — as they make their way up the hill. If you hand them a yellow Volkswagen and they have to haul this to the top of the mountain — to the end of the story — and they find that this Volkswagen has nothing whatsoever to do with your story, you're going to have a very irritated reader on your hands.”

— Frank Conroy
