„Es gibt drei Arten von Gefühlen beim Lesen eines Buchs: Langeweile, Interesse und ‚Wow‘. Der Job des Autors ist es, das Wow-Gefühl auf so vielen Seiten wie möglich herzustellen. (…) Bei großartigem Geschichtenerzählen geht es nur um eins: den Leser emotional zu fesseln.“

Karl Iglesias, Emotionen im Film

„Our job as artists is to build a body of work. When we drop our preconceptions about what good writing is and we give ourselves permission to write ‚quick and dirty‘, everything changes. Permission to write so does not produce poor writing, but its opposite. We become a channel for the story that wants to be told through us. Rather than impressing our reader with our important writing, we can impress with our willingness to be truthful on the page. “

Alan Watt, The 90-Day-Novel
