If the doctor told me I had six minutes to live, I'd type a little faster.
The only thing I was fit for was to be a writer, and this notion rested solely on my suspicion that I would never be fit for real work, and that writing didn't require any.
Quantity produces quality. If you only write a few things, you're doomed.
I don't think it is possible to give tips for finding one's voice; it's one of those things for which there aren't really any tricks or shortcuts, or even any advice that necessarily translates from writer to writer. All I can tell you is to write as much as possible.

I get up in the morning, torture a typewriter until it screams, then stop.
