"To all beginners, I give credit for being writers already, since they intend, for better or worse, to risk exposing their emotions, their quirks, their attitude toward life, to public scrutiny."
"I believe in individuality, in being oneself, in using the maximum of one's talent. That is what the public finally loves -- something special and individual."
-- Patricia Highsmith, Plotting and Writing Suspense Fiction, St Martin's 1983.
