The Familiar

"What I find to be very bad advice is the sappy little sentence, 'Write what you know.' It is the most tiresome and stupid advice that could possibly be given. If we write simply what we know we never grow." -Annie Proulx

"I come from a kind of old-fashioned Midwest, and I live in a technocorporate, postironic, cool, late-late-late Eastern world. The two worlds hardly ever talk to each other, but they're completely, constantly talking to one another inside of me ... I have my parents talking to me in my head and then other parts of myself talking back." -author Jonathan Franzen

Perspective

"You write in order to change the world, knowing perfectly well that you probably can't, but also knowing that literature is indispensable to the world. The world changes according to the way people see it, and if you alter, even but a millimeter, the way people look at reality, then you can change it." -James Baldwin
