Tom Clancy ~ 1947-2013


“You learn to write the same way you learn to play golf. You do it, and keep doing it until you get it right. A lot of people think something mystical happens to you, that maybe the muse kisses you on the ear. But writing isn’t divinely inspired — it’s hard work.”

    Can’t say I’m enamored by Mr. Clancy because of the way he treats women–ie, he doesn’t really. I know the world he writes about is seen to be a “man’s world” but there are actually more women in them than you’d think, and he ignored them all. And his men are very one-dimensional and flawless, Greek Gods if you will. Still, having said that, 66 is too young to die.
