I've noticed a difference in the way I write stories and the way I tell stories...

  • me (writing): And so she resolved to journey to the ruins of the north, for it was there, in the heart of the castle that the enchanted stone resided.
  • me (aloud): And then she's like, "I'm gonna go north to where there's all those broken buildings and shit" cause there's, like, a castle there in the castle there's this weird magic crystal or something.

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.

As a writer, I’m more interested in what people tell themselves happened rather than what actually happened.

Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.

If you spend enough time reading or writing, you find a voice, but you also find certain tastes. You find certain writers who when they write, it makes your own brain voice like a tuning fork, and you just resonate with them. And when that happens, reading those writers … becomes a source of unbelievable joy. It’s like eating candy for the soul.

And I sometimes have a hard time understanding how people who don’t have that in their lives make it through the day.
