Quotes illustration
“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.”

More from John Green

“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.”
“Different authors write different ways, have different relationships with their audiences, and those are all legitimate.”
