Literary Birthday – 21 January – M. K. Hobson

Happy Birthday, M. K. Hobson, born 21 January 1969.


  1. I’ve just always been fascinated by what our belief can do, and what happens when we misuse that.
  2. Politics have no relation to morals.
  3. I really do believe some people are naturally novelists and some people are short story writers. For me, when I was in middle school or high school, I started with novels.
  4. I’m awfully envious of writers who have the discipline to complete a specific writing goal each and every day. It seems quite a sane and sober approach. I, on the other hand, write like a drunkard. I’m a binge writer. (via)
  5. Once I had the concept and outline completed I was able to write the first draft very quickly — probably about three months. Then there was a lot of rewriting after that. That is my usual process. (via)
