In describing my experience I am recording not what happened or what exists, but how I perceive it.
In doing so I define myself. As I create my diary, I create myself.

Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.

You can approach the act of writing with nervousness, excitement, hopefulness, or even despair--the sense that you can never completely put on the page what's in your mind and heart. You can come to the act with your fists clenched and your eyes narrowed, ready to kick ass and take down names. You can come to it because you want a girl to marry you or because you want to change the world. Come to it any way but lightly. Let me say it again: you must not come lightly to the blank page.
- Stephen King
