Even after I played ten years of ball, I still felt like I had to play well or somebody might take my place.

I hustled and put that extra effort in all of the time.

The most difficult thing about living as a writer is precisely 'having to write.' Pretending to be a writer is easy. Living freely, reading many books, going on frequent trips, cultivating minor eccentricities... but genuinely being a writer is difficult, because you have to write something that will convince both yourself and readers.
People are too apt to treat God as if he were a minor royalty.
Herbert Beerbohm Tree

Hubbard set up the Church of Scientology in Hollywood in 1954 for a reason.

'Blind Curve,' the book I'm working on now, sprang from a crazy incident that happened to me last year while on my book tour.
