An Uneasy Bargain

"Remember, your story is an uneasy bargain with your reader. Your end of the bargain is to play fair, and keep him interested, his end of the bargain is to keep reading. It is just terribly terribly easy to put a story down half-read and go off and do something else."

Shirley Jackson

Let it Bleed

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."

— Ernest Hemingway
