Inspire to BE an author... a poet... a journalist...
"I get my ideas from living my life wide-eyed and awake. I sit on the edge of chairs. I pay attention to wherever I am."
"I write every day for two hours. But it's what I do for the other twenty-two hours that allows me to write."
"It's misleading to think of writers as special creatures, word sorcerers who possess some sort of magical knowledge hidden from everyone else. Writers are ordinary people who like to write. They feel the urge to write, and they scratch that itch every chance they get."
