Grant Morrison quote:

“I’ve been reading about the scientific theory of emergence, which is basically that if you get a bunch of simple things together, and you get enough of them, they start to form something complex. Like, a single sponge cell is completely stupid, but a bunch of sponge cells can actually do stuff, move around, eat, keep themselves going. So, I was applying this theory to writing. Because, we’ve all heard the story about how writers talk about they get to a point in the story when it gets so involved and the story and the characters seem to take over. And as a writer I can say that actually happens, there’s a moment when the story takes over and you’re kind of forced into making choices that you may’ve not made otherwise. So I like the idea that there’s maybe actually something going on here that had to do with emergence, that you can make the story complex enough that the story almost begins to compute for itself, and start to think for itself.” *

Rich Johnston quote:

“He’s a clever sod that Mark Millar. No, seriously, he has systematically built his way up from writing licensed children’s comics in a backwater, each time building up the next step. It’s like that puzzle where you place one grain of rice on the first square of a chessboard, two grains on the second, four grains on the third and by the end of the board you have more grains of rice than exist in the world.” *

Warren Ellis quote:

“I think I’m also going to sit around with a bottle and just think for a while. The thinking time is essential. At least half of all writing involves just sitting and staring into space. Letting your brain out to hunt down ideas, bringing them back all warm and bloody between its teeth.” *

Richard Branson quote:

“You should never go into an industry just with the purpose of making money.  One has to passionately believe it is possible to change the industry, to turn it on its head, to make sure that it will never be the same again.” *
