You need a reason to be sad. You don’t need a reason to be happy.  (Louis Sachar Quotes) I didn’t become a good writer until I learned how to rewrite.

If you take a huge step-aim for too bigger dreams-then the current will knock you off your feet and carry you away. The way to do it is small steps, you will take hold of life. You will get there in the end  (Louis Sachar Quotes) But I’m taking small steps ‘Cause I don’t know where I’m going I’m taking small steps And I don’t know what to say. Small steps, Trying to pull myself together And maybe I’ll discover A clue along the way!  (Louis Sachar Quotes) What amazes me is that most days feel useless. I don’t seem to accomplish anything-just a few pages, most of which don’t seem very good.

My no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather  (Louis Sachar Quotes) I never think of an entire book at once. I always just start with a very small idea. In ‘Holes,’ I just began with the setting; a juvenile correctional facility located in the Texas desert. Then I slowly make up the story, and rewrite it several times, and each time I rewrite it, I get new ideas, and change the old ideas around  (Louis Sachar Quotes) Whenever you give someone a present or sing a holiday song, you’re helping Santa Claus. To me, that’s what Christmas is all about. Helping Santa Claus!  (Louis Sachar Quotes) Not counting ‘Small Steps,’ I think ‘Holes’ is my best book, in terms of plot, and setting, and the way the story revealed itself. It hasn’t changed my life, other than that I have more money than I did before I wrote it. I’m still too close to ‘Small Steps’ to compare it to ‘Holes.’  (Louis Sachar Quotes) It’s - I write the books and let the market find who reads it. I guess a young adult is anywhere from ten to fifteen  (Louis Sachar Quotes) I remember my fourth grade teacher reading ‘Charlotte’s Web’ and ‘Stuart Little’ to us - both, of course, by E. B. White. His stories were genuinely funny, thought provoking and full of irony and charm. He didn’t condescend to his readers, which was why I liked his books, and why I wasn’t a big reader of other children’s’ books  (Louis Sachar Quotes) I’m no good at describing my books. ‘Holes’ has been out now for seven years, and I still can’t come up with a good answer when asked what that book is about  (Louis Sachar Quotes) I think what makes good children’s books is putting the same care and effort into it as if I was writing for adults. I don’t write anything - put anything in my books - that I’d be embarrassed to put in an adult book  (Louis Sachar Quotes) Warning: Do not read this story right after eating. In fact, don’t read it right before eating either.

I’m aware that ‘Holes’ was read by kids as young as 8, up to adults.  (Louis Sachar Quotes) My parents played bridge, and I remember being fascinated watching them. I sometimes got a chance to sit in on a hand, which I loved. But then I didn’t actually play on my own for about 30 years.  (Louis Sachar Quotes) The Cardturner,’ while it has bridge in it, you certainly don’t need to know how to play bridge to read it. It’s basically a book about relationships - between Alton and his great-uncle, and Alton and his friends, and how it changes his life.  (Louis Sachar Quotes) I’m an avid bridge player. I usually go to the local bridge club three or four times a week. I’ve always been a game-player, and I think bridge is one of the greatest games ever invented.
