Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them–every day begin the task anew.
It’s never too late to be what you might have been.

We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.
You can’t think yourself out of a writing block; you have to write yourself out of a thinking block.
One of your characters comes across a letter in the back of a closet while searching for something. Your character becomes emotional after reading the letter. What was your character looking for in the closet? Who is the letter from? What does it say? What is its significance to your character? Show how your character is feeling.

I deal with writer’s block by lowering my expectations. I think the trouble starts when you sit down to write and imagine that you will achieve something magical and magnificent—and when you don’t, panic sets in. The solution is never to sit down and imagine that you will achieve something magical and magnificent. I write a little bit, almost every day, and if it results in two or three or (on a good day) four good paragraphs, I consider myself a lucky man. Never try to be the hare. All hail the tortoise.
