quote 2013-10-26 21:50
"Your book is valid, but it needs less of the things that you've collected, bought, borrowed, and been given. The book is full of obvious personal experiences gone awry in your head. It needs the experiences you have stolen. Make them yours. Writing isn't immaculate conception. You have to take everything you see, hear, feel, run into, imagine, you steal it all Alex...and then you write."
