I'm writing a book from the perspective of a migrating salmon. I'm titling it 'Stream of Instinct.' The style is low-functioning. While typing, I was diagnosed with autism.
A writer becomes an author when a hive of editors plagiarizes him. A manuscript becomes a book when neologisms are turned into coinages.
You can always tell the quality of an author by their cover picture. Bad writers bear an idiotic smile on the inside flap. Great writers take up the entire back cover looking slightly mad, sad, or bored. The very best writers, though, had the superior ability to die before photography was invented.
I hate the rhetoric of politicians, but I love it when writers lie to me. If novelists ran for office, I would vote for their characters.
I love working with my hands. My writing is rough, my paper bruised with ink stains.
