Unlike your family and some of your friends, other writers don't think it odd that you talk about your characters as if they were actually alive.

- Judy Reeves, A Writer's Book of Days

When I was a writer, I had to explain over and over again that my fiction was not based on my life. People never believed me. No one ever asked if my life was based on my fiction.

- Sara Lewis, Second Draft of My Life

The writer who cannot distinguish truth from a peanut-butter sandwich can never write good fiction.

- John Gardner, The Art of Fiction

If not for Leia, Xena would be unemployed, Janeway would be fetching coffee for Captain Kirk in a micromini skirt, and Scully's job would be waiting for Mulder to rescue her every week.

While not the bravest of Gryffindors, the Gryffindor Pisces still exhibits a quiet courage. They aren't afraid to face painful truths, if there really is no way of escaping them. These Gryffindors are deeply compassionate, and full of emotional strength, often becoming the unofficial counselors in the common room who everybody runs to for advice. They are romantic to an extreme; their minds are stuffed full of fairy tales, myths, and legends. They often spend more time daydreaming than doing their homework, to the vexation of their professors. Still, their daydreams do sometimes produce uncanny insights.
