"All autobiography is storytelling, all writing is autobiography."

J.M Coetzee

"It's probably natural for readers to move into writing, and that's essentially what happened to me. Creating people out of nothing and putting them on paper seemed like an amusing and interesting thing to do. Writing novels is a great deal of fun. The play element in it for me is very large. "

Annie Proulx

"When I used to teach creative writing, I would tell the students to make their characters want something right away—even if it’s only a glass of water. Characters paralyzed by the meaningless of modern life still have to drink water from time to time. "

Kurt Vonnegut

"Whatever you're meant to do, do it now. The conditions are always impossible."

Doris Lessing

"What makes a novel feel vital is when it comes into being as it is written, in much the same way as the moment occurs as it is lived. So what I was doing was writing blindly, unknowing of what would come next."

Karl Ove Knausgaard

"I write a lot of material that I know I’ll throw away. It’s just part of the process. I have to write hundreds of pages before I get to page one."

Barbara Kingsolver

"My novel took up the sweetest part of my mind and the rarest part of my imagination; it was like being in love and better. All day long when I was busy ... I had my unfinished novel personified almost as a secret companion and accomplice following me like a shadow wherever I went, whatever I did."

Muriel Spark

"The scariest moment is always just before you start."

Stephen King

"It is only when our characters and events begin to disobey us that they begin to live."

John Fowles

"Each book is, in a sense, an argument with myself, and I would write it, whether it is ever published or not."

Patricia Highsmith

"I have been a man who is always about to go into a room and write. That's where I'd rather be, most of the time"

Hanif Kureishi

"No tricks."

Raymond Carver
