Creative Quotations from . . .
Mickey Spillane
(1918-2006) born on
Mar 9
US author. He was one of the originators of "Captain Marvel" and created detective Mike Hammer, e.g., "The Girl Hunters," 1962.
         
   
F
If you're a singer you lose your voice. A baseball player loses his arm. A writer gets more knowledge, and if he's good, the older he gets, the better he writes.

R
If the public likes you, you're good. Shakespeare was a common, down-to-earth writer in his day.
A
Those big-shot writers could never dig the fact that there are more salted peanuts consumed than caviar.
N
I'm a commercial writer, not an "author." Margaret Mitchell was an author. She wrote one book.
K
Nobody reads a mystery to get to the middle. They read it to get to the end. If it's a letdown, they won't buy anymore. The first page sells that book. The last page sells your next book.
