Empathy is a hand thick with scars offering you a bandage.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Slaying Dragons

If only you’d remember before ever you sit down to write that you’ve been a reader long before you were ever a writer. You simply fix that fact in your mind, then sit very still and ask yourself, as a reader, what piece of writing in all the world Buddy Glass would most want to read if he had his heart’s choice. The next step is terrible, but so simple I can hardly believe it as I write it. You just sit down shamelessly and write the thing yourself. I won’t even underline that. It’s too important to be underlined.
J.D. Salinger, Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters & Seymour: An Introduction
