Please enjoy the quotes along with the art work by Ramona du Houx.  —Peter Bollen

“Congratulations on your compilation —  it’s very worthwhile.”

A treasure, a welcome companion for any working writer. In this lonely field, one often feels blocked, stopped, and distracted. . . Refreshing . . . illustrates that so many others, especially the giants of this craft have felt exactly the same and then gone on to publish wonderful stories. It is a source of solace, comfort and encouragement, much needed and much appreciated. It has a permanent place next to my computer keyboard
