There's a lot of great stuff on TV.
I may be a gadget freak, but let me tell you clearly, I'm not on Twitter.
I am an avid fisherman, and my daily schedule is to write in the morning and then go fishing in the afternoon. In Maine, I fish mostly for stripers, and in the Florida Keys, I go after all kinds of game fish.
Advertising is the art of convincing people to spend money they don't have for something they don't need.
I laugh at stuff like Snapchat thinking it can change the world.

Every moment of a science fiction story must represent the triumph of writing over world-building.
I remember the first time somebody played me Janis Joplin. My friend Donna put on Janis Joplin, and she said, 'You're like her.' At the time, I wasn't even a singer; I was a drummer. I just wanted to play the drums.

If at first you don't succeed, find out if the loser gets anything.
