Robert Asprin QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
As for who you're influences are, that's one of the things people always like to ask who are your favorite writers? Invariably it turns out to be who you've been reading in the last couple of weeks, and two hours or two days later you go, 'Oh my God! I forgot to mention so-and-so.'
Quotation of Robert Asprin
Between you and me, I think that may be one of the things that will help with the collaboration, because there are things Eric thinks I'm moving too quickly on, and there are things I think he's dragging out. When it gets to the editor they can arbitrate.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
But we really didn't take each other's material and say 'This is a bad sentence.' Sometimes we would say 'This could use an element.' But I didn't take my stuff, give it to Bob and let him edit it; and I didn't edit his. Our writing styles are so different, that we really didn't want them melded.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
I sleep until 2 or 3 in the afternoon, and I usually don't start crashing until somewhere between 5 and 8 in the morning.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
I've had a five- or six-year down-spell as a writer, and now that most of the other contracts are cleared or down to the last book, I have a chance to do what I want to do - specifically, something set in New Orleans.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
It's interesting that instead of having to get tighter and more restricted for a collaboration, strangely enough, from the beginning, we've actually been more confident that we could handle this.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
New Orleans life is such a night life. The thing that comes up very often is that our day essentially doesn't start until midnight or 2 in the morning.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
OK, here's the basic story. What direction are we taking it in? What are we seeing for the next couple of scenes or chapters?
Quotation of Robert Asprin
Our mutual love of movie trivia factors occasionally in the 'Bone' character. It crops up a bit more in the 'Maestro' character.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
Something that is very unusual for me, we worked without an outline. We were developing it as we led, letting the story flow through the characters and the investigation. Normally, I outline very tightly, because I hate doing rewrites, especially for humor. Trying to rewrite humor is a real drag.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
That's a good question, but it's like having a 'Z' in Scrabble and no way to use it.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
The basic story for the opener is that word came through the bar that someone got knifed and killed up on the Moon Walk. It turns out to be one of the quarter regulars that everybody knows, including Maestro and Bone.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
The only time I see 8 or 9 o'clock in the morning is if I'm still up for it, and that happens on at least a semi-regular basis.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
We're kidding on that. One of the things I insisted upon when we went into this project was that we are full partners, going fifty-fifty, both on the money and on the say of what's going on with the books.
Quotation of Robert Asprin
Writing that's not working for a living.
