I have always written first drafts by hand, but I used to write subsequent drafts and insert pages on a typewriter.  (John Irving Quotes) Know the story before you fall in love with your first sentence. If you don’t know the story before you begin the story, what kind of a storyteller are you? Just an ordinary kind, just a mediocre kind ” making it up as you go along, like a common liar.  (John Irving Quotes) I lived five years in the Midwest, and I loved it. The people were so nice. The people were so open.  (John Irving Quotes) If you asked me one day, I might say, Well, sometimes I feel a little bit religious.
