    From the guide

    On the Art: "Even beginners understand and accept the basic principles of interior setting--that a person who owns an ice bucket and silver cocktail shaker is different from someone who owns a claw-footed tub for bathing." (Richard Russo, from Chapter 16)

    On the Process: "One of my theories about writing is that the process involves an ongoing interchange between Left Brain and Right Brain. The journal provides a testing ground where the two can engage." (Sue Grafton, from Chapter 19)

    On the Genres: "Even the most ridiculous farce must resonate in some identifiable way with truths we have discovered about ourselves." (Terry Brooks, from Chapter 27)
