“There is a difference between what you might enjoy as a simple event and what you enjoy as a process. Process is a better tip-off to talent.

“People who read a lot and enjoy life and enjoy words make better writers.” – Candice Hern, Author, A Proper Companion

“A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.” – Richard Bach
