Text Quotes
By his very profession, a serious fiction writer is a vendor of the sensuous particulars of life, a perceiver and handler of things. His most valuable tools are his sense and his memory; what happens in his mind is primarily pictures  (Fiction Writer Quotes) If you like to read, sometimes it’s interesting just to go and see what the reality is, of the word, of the seedy or not so seedy fiction writer, the drunk or sober poet... Sometimes you can go looking for illumination  (Fiction Writer Quotes) Being a fiction writer is really like being an actor, because if you’re going to write convincingly it has to sound right and play right. The only way that works is to emotionally and technically act out and see the scene you’re in. There’s no better job in the world, because when I sit down at that computer I’m the world’s best forensics expert, if that’s what I’m writing about that day. Or I’m some crazed psycho running down a dark alley. Or I’m a gorgeous woman looking to find a man that night. Whatever! But I’m all of those things, every day. How can you beat that?  (Fiction Writer Quotes) As a writer one doesn’t belong anywhere. Fiction writers, I think, are even more outside the pale, necessarily on the edge of society. Because society and people are our meat, one really doesn’t belong in the midst of society. The great challenge in writing is always to find the universal in the local, the parochial. And to do that, one needs distance  (Fiction Writer Quotes) Well you can’t believe everything you read. After all, by definition, fiction writers lie for a living  (Fiction Writer Quotes) The process of writing fiction is totally unconscious. It comes from what you are learning, as you live, from within. For me, all writing is a process of discovery. We are looking for the meaning of life. No matter where you are, there are conflicts and dramas everywhere. It is the process of what it means to be a human being; how you react and are reacted upon, these inward and outer pressures. If you are writing with a direct cause in mind, you are writing propaganda. It’s fatal for a fiction writer  (Fiction Writer Quotes) That’s what fiction writers do: create characters and do terrible things to them for the entertainment of others. If they feel guilty enough, they write happy endings  (Fiction Writer Quotes) There are no such things as happy endings. Never. They’re totally manufactured by fiction writers who choose to end the story on a high point  (Fiction Writer Quotes) Me, I have a science fiction writer’s conviction that the damn robot is supposed to speakhuman, not the other way around  (Fiction Writer Quotes) Creative nonfiction writers do not make things up; they make ideas and information that already exist more interesting and often more accessible  (Fiction Writer Quotes) In fact, one could argue that the skill of the fiction writer boils down to the ability to exploit intensity  (Fiction Writer Quotes) All nonfiction writers, whether they like it or not, are translators. The translator is the perfect journalist. The best journalism endeavors to convey an essential idea or story to an audience that knows very little about it, and that requires translation. To do this successfully, the writer must filter the idea through the prism of his eye, and his mind, and his writing style  (Fiction Writer Quotes) There are vast differences between scripts and stories, of course. Few fiction writers would want to give up the opportunity to explore how the minds of their characters work, or to set aside the opportunity to provide necessary background exposition in a succinct fashion  (Fiction Writer Quotes) The thing about being a mystery writer, what marks a mystery writer out from a chick lit author or historical fiction writer, is that you always find a mystery in every situation  (Fiction Writer Quotes) I think every fiction writer, to a certain extent, is a schizophrenic and able to have two or three or five voices in his or her body. We seek, through our profession, to get those voices onto paper  (Fiction Writer Quotes) Fiction writers are strange beasts. They are, like all writers, observers first and foremost. Everything that happens to and around them is potential material for a story, and they look at it that way  (Fiction Writer Quotes) It’s probably a form of childish curiosity that keeps me going as a fiction writer. I... want to open everybody’s bureau drawers and see what they keep in there. I’m nosy  (Fiction Writer Quotes) My experience as a fiction writer tells me that the deeper I look into myself, the more universal is the experience I find there  (Fiction Writer Quotes) Delaying and withholding tactics, red herrings, partial and doubtful outcomes are stock in trade for fiction writers, especially crime writers  (Fiction Writer Quotes) The training of a journalist, of working with words for thousands of hours, is extraordinarily useful for a fiction writer  (Fiction Writer Quotes) It’s always great when you want scientific fact to get a really good science fiction writer to talk to you about it  (Fiction Writer Quotes) I think the one thing that’s changed over time is that I’ve come to realise, as a fiction writer, the fact that I don’t think it will work out, doesn’t mean that it actually won’t  (Fiction Writer Quotes) Science fiction is the most important literature in the history of the world, because it’s the history of ideas, the history of our civilization birthing itself... Science fiction is central to everything we’ve ever done, and people who make fun of science fiction writers don’t know what they’re talking about  (Fiction Writer Quotes) I think that there are fiction writers for whom that works well. I could never do it. I feel as if, by the time I see that it’s a poem, it’s almost written in my head somewhere  (Fiction Writer Quotes) Most fiction writers uses dreams decoratively without relating them to daily life, but the contemporary writer is becoming more expert at detecting the influence of one upon the other  (Fiction Writer Quotes) As a fiction writer, my favorite tools are my imagination and the peculiar opportunities offered by different points of view  (Fiction Writer Quotes) Science fiction writers, I am sorry to say, really do not know anything. We can’t talk about science, because our knowledge of it is limited and unofficial, and usually our fiction is dreadful  (Fiction Writer Quotes) If you’re a fiction writer, though, I can tell you how to let people talk through you. Listen. Just be quiet, and listen. Let the character talk. Don’t censor, don’t control. Listen, and write  (Fiction Writer Quotes) For a fiction writer, a storyteller, the world is full of stories, and when a story is there, it’s there, and you just reach up and pick it  (Fiction Writer Quotes) There is always a certain leap of faith that editors have made with their nonfiction writers. If the trust is broken, things can get very embarrassing for the writers and the publisher  (Fiction Writer Quotes)
