Quote Me: To Write is to Take Chances, says J. Michael Straczynski

“To write is to take chances. Sometimes you succeed, sometimes you don’t, because the measure of success is in the eyes of the reader. And a subjective opinion is always right for that reader, always true for that person.”

J. Michael Straczynski (7/10/04), writer, The Amazing Spider-Man, Babylon 5 etc. etc. etc.
