„Oh— and “but it’s a good story” is the biggest load of crap ever foisted on the reading audience. Any story which deliberately violates core concepts and themes of original materials is not, by definition “a good story.” Time some people pulled their heads out of various writers’ asses and realized that.“

— John Byrne, (2006) http://www.byrnerobotics.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=12516&PN=1&TPN=1

„The writing of a novel or short story or poem or whatever should elevate the audience, not drag the writer down to some level beneath herself.“

— Caitlín R. Kiernan writer 1964
Context: The writing of a novel or short story or poem or whatever should elevate the audience, not drag the writer down to some level beneath herself. And she — the author — should fight always to prevent that dragging down, especially when the only possible benefit of allowing it to happen is monetary. (10 January 2005)

„The good stories, of course, write themselves.“

— R. A. Lafferty American writer 1914 - 2002
Context: The good stories, of course, write themselves. And somebody wants to know who are the really good writers, and how many of them there are. There aren't any. Most of the writers are likeable frauds. Some are unlikable frauds. It's Down the Slippery Cellar Stairs (1995)
