Neil Gaiman on Writing

14 Sep

Tell your story. Don’t try and tell the stories that other people can tell. Because as a starting writer, you always start out with other people’s voices – you’ve been reading other people for years… But, as quickly as you can, start telling the stories that only you can tell – because there will always be better writers than you, there will always be smarter writers than you… but you are the only you.
