Words to live by, kinda...

"The profession of book-writing makes horse racing seem like a solid, stable business."
--John Steinbeck

"A writer is paid per word, per hour, or perhaps."
--Robert Benchley

"Nothing succeeds like persistence."

"Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers."
--T.S. Eliot

"No man but a blockhead ever wrote, except for money."
--Samuel Johnson

"Success is a journey, not a destination."

"I still see stories as a great thing, something which not only enhances lives, but actually saves them. Nor am I speaking metaphorically. Good writing--good stories--are the imagination's firing pin, and the purpose of the imagination, I believe, is to offer us solace and shelter from situations and life-passages which would otherwise prove unendurable."
--Stephen King

"Writing is my life. But there's more to life than writing."
--Mark Terry
