Writing. It's bloody hard

"Write every day, line by line, page by page, hour by hour. Do this despite fear. For above all else, beyond imagination and skill, what the world asks of you is courage, courage to risk rejection, ridicule and failure."
Robert McKee

"All good books have one thing in common - they are truer than if they had really happened"
- Ernest Hemingway

"I don't know why I started writing. I don't know why anybody does it. Maybe they're bored, or failures at something else." 
— Cormac McCarthy

"There is no way of writing well and also writing easily."
- Anthony Trollope

"You must stay drunk on writing so reality can not destroy you."
- Ray Bradbury
