Romantic Quotes, Love Quotes, Mystery Quotes

I want a character to wake up one day and feel like, 'I can face it'. That, to me, is happy. I want the characters to rescue themselves, though you use the relationships you have, to make you strong enough to be able to do that.

Character Quotes, Relationship Quotes

Myth Quotes

Don't force yourself to write. Some people can write a novel in a few months, whereas for others it can take over a year. I'm lucky to be one of the former - but, even so, if I'm not in the mood to write, I won't. I'll go off, do something else and come back to it when I'm ready.

Luck Quotes

Discover your own style. Don't try to repeat what has already been written - have the courage to do your own thing and don't be afraid to do something different.
