“Likability is a factor when you’re choosing a roommate, but it’s not necessarily a factor when you’re creating a living character.”

More from Margaret Atwood

“Any form of human creativity is a process of doing it and getting better at it…[Writers] don’t usually peak in their 20s. It’s usually quite a lot later on.”
“When I was starting to write, none of us thought we were going to have careers. We thought we were going to have vocations, which is quite a different thing. So our idea of being a writer was not a six-figure contract.”
“When push comes to shove, the buck stops with you. So whoever’s advice you may have taken, whatever alterations may have been made, what is on that page is going to be considered your work.”
