Quotes: I Just Write the Thing
I never write stories with the ending in mind, because I want the story to develop a life of its own, and I want the resolution of the dilemma to surprise me. Sometimes I really get myself stuck this way. This story spun completely out of control and surprised me throughout, so it's one of my favorites.
Bill Watterson, describing the storyline in which Calvin duplicates himself, The Calvin and Hobbes Tenth Anniversary Book

I do not hold myself responsible for any of the opinions expressed by the characters in my book.
Lewis Carroll, in the preface to Sylvie and Bruno.

Nostalgia Critic: You're the author! Tell me what to do!
Doug Walker: You're the character! Tell me what to write!
