“We're professional worriers. You're constantly imagining things that could go wrong and then writing about them.”

More from John Green

“The funny thing about writing is that whether you're doing well or doing it poorly, it looks the exact same. That's actually one of the main ways that writing is different from ballet dancing.”
“I like to know the places I write about. I feel like it helps me ground the novel. My novels are 'realistic novels,' but they can also be fantastical, so it's nice to have a setting that grounds them a little bit.”
“Read a lot. Read broadly... Tell stories to your friends, and pay attention to when they get bored... Write a lot.”
