people not characters.
A character is a caricature.

I'm writing a book.
I've got the page numbers done.

Reading her 21st re-write, she looked up.  
She was amazed to find that she'd got married, had two children, moved, 
got a dog and now had 15 rabbits.




“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”

—Enid Bagnold




“The road to hell is paved with works-in-progress.”
—Philip Roth




“Remember: Plot is no more than footprints left in the snow after your characters have run by on their way to incredible destinations.”

—Ray Bradbury




“When I say work I only mean writing. Everything else is just odd jobs.”
—Margaret Laurence
