The job of the writer is to take a close and uncomfortable look at the world they inhabit, the world we all inhabit, and the job of the novel is to make the corpse stink.
You know how writers are…they create themselves as they create their work. Or perhaps they create their work in order to create themselves.
Orson Scott Card
True alchemy lies in this formula: “Your memory and your senses are but the nourishment of your creative impulse”.
All things must be examined, debated, investigated without exception and without regard for anyone’s feelings.
