艾伦·迪恩·福斯特(Alan Dean Foster)名言

I hear entire symphonies, oratorios, in my head, but I can't write a note.

我在脑子里听到了整个交响乐,清唱剧,但我一个音符也写不出来。

Keep writing. Try to do a little bit every day, even if the result looks like crap. Getting from page four to page five is more important than spending three weeks getting page four perfect.

继续写。试着每天做一点,即使结果看起来很糟糕。把第四页翻到第五页比花三个星期把第四页翻得完美更重要。

Living gives you a better understanding of life. I would hope that my characters have become deeper and more rounded personalities. Wider travels have given me considerably greater insight into how cultural differences affect not only people, but politics and art.

生活能让你更好地理解生活。我希望我的角色变得更深刻,更全面的个性。更广泛的旅行使我对文化差异如何不仅影响人们,而且影响政治和艺术有了更深刻的认识。

Advances have fallen, generally, for everything except the biggest potential bestsellers. Given all the changes, both economic and technological, SF hasn't done too badly.

一般来说,除了最具潜力的畅销书外,其他所有产品的预付款都有所下降。考虑到所有这些变化,无论是经济上还是技术上,SF的表现都不算太差。

I see the Jedi mission as giving up a normal life in exchange for protecting the innocent. It's a life of sacrifice. There are rewards, but also a certain degree of sterility.

我认为绝地任务是为了保护无辜而放弃正常的生活。这是一种牺牲的生活。有回报,也有一定程度的不育。

Getting inside the mind of a terrorist wasn't difficult at all. Even as children, human beings fabricate elaborate revenge fantasies. We're not a particular species. Check out popular video games.

了解恐怖分子的想法一点都不难。即使是在孩童时期,人类也会编造复杂的复仇幻想。我们不是一个特殊的物种。看看流行的电子游戏。

There's certainly more new SF available than when I started writing. That means there's also more bad SF available. Whether there is also more good is a matter for future historians of the field.

当然比我开始写作时有更多的新SF可用。这意味着还有更多的坏SF可用。是否也有更多的好的是一个问题,为未来的历史学家的领域。

The overwhelming triumph of the international multimedia conglomerate has resulted in less diversity within the field and has made it much harder for newer writers not only to break in, but to make any kind of a living while doing so.

这家国际多媒体集团的压倒性胜利导致了该领域的多样性减少,使新作家不仅难以闯入,而且更难以在闯入的同时谋生。
