William Styron

Wordcrafts' Quotes

Multiple Identities

"You have to become a different person to write the next book. The person you are already wrote the last book."

— Jonathan Franzen

The Zone

"When I write, I fall into the zone many writers, painters, musicians, athletes, and craftsmen of all sorts seem to share: In doing something I enjoy and am expert at, deliberate thought falls aside and it is all just there. I think of the next word no more than the composer thinks of the next note."

— Roger Ebert
