Any other writers find favorites there?The most solid advice . . . for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell, and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

Try to be alive
I stumbled on a great website for author inspiration today. It's http://advicetowriters.com. I've only given it a quick once over so far. A Mark Twain quote about caring for characters really spoke to me, like Mark Twain quotes tend to do, but my favorite quote so far is this one, by William Saroyan.
