Neil Gaiman“The difference between young writers and old writers is that when you’re a young writer you may not have the craft, but you’re saying everything for the first time, so everything you’re saying is new.  As an older writer — especially if you’re an older writer like me, who never enjoys repeating himself — it gets to be much more of a trade-off. On the one hand my craft and skill is all crafty and skilly, but on the other hand I’m no longer in the glorious position where everything I say I’m saying for the first time.” – Neil Gaiman
