Writers on Writing: Stephen King, Ernest Hemingway, and Mark Twain

I try to create sympathy for my characters, then turn the monsters loose. — Stephen King

Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life. — Stephen King

Prose is architecture, not interior decoration. — Ernest Hemingway

It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way. — Ernest Hemingway

Most writers regard the truth as their most valuable possession, and therefore are most economical in its use. — Mark Twain

The only difference between reality and fiction is that fiction has to be credible. — Mark Twain
