    "Nobody teaches a writer anything. You tell them what you know. You tell them to find their voice and stick with it, because that's all you have in the end. You tell the ones who have it to keep at it.

    But you tell the ones who DON'T to keep at it, too. Because that's the only way to get where you're going."
