Substitute 'damn' every time you're inclined to write 'very'; your editor will delete it and the writing will be just
as it should be.

 I have a love-hate relationship with the writing life. I wouldn't wish to have any other kind of life... and on the other hand, I wish it were easier. It never is. The reward comes sentence by sentence. The reward comes in the unexpected inspiration. The reward comes from creating a character who lives and breathes and is perfectly real. But such effort it takes to attain the reward! I would never have believed it would take such effort.

I was curious about PinInterest so I had a look and found this pinned to Writing Inspiration. I thought it was a great list!

Know what you love. Try imagining the book that would light your heart and mind on fire if you came across it in a bookstore - the one that would quicken your pulse and keep you up all night reading. What would it be? Details, details: when, where, what, who? Think it up, imagine it fully, then bring it forth. That's the book you should be writing.

It is my contention that a really great novel is made with a knife and not a pen. A novelist must have the intestinal fortitude to cut out even the most brilliant passage so long as it doesn't advance the story.
