Great writing quotes

From Isaac Asimov:

"You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist."

and Robert Sawyer:

"Writers live in a different world than everyone else. They are neither "here" nor "there". When they are "here" as in their own world with their families and friends, they are always thinking of their fictional world, "there". When they are "there", they are feeling guilty for not being "here".
