Love to the point of folly.
Afflictions eclipsed by glory.
Write until your fingers break.
Everything worth doing hurts like hell.
The individual will be thoroughly misunderstood.
Write as if you were dying … — that is, after all, the case.
Completely fearless, absurdly happy, and in constant trouble.
Every action you take and every signal you send must be in support of the story.
You have to realize, ‘If I don’t write this — no one will. If I die — this idea dies with me.’
