Motivational Moments for…Writers! #1
You know a story has been rattling around in your brain. TODAY is the day you will find time to sit down and write the first sentence, the first page, even the first chapter. Don’t worry about what will follow. The story will lead you. If you are very lucky your characters will take over and tell you their story. Don’t worry about it being perfect; that’s what re-writes are for.
‘It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does.’ —William Faulkner
“Writing is a Tryst with the imagination and a love affair with words.” —Unknown
“The reader, the book lover, must meet his own needs without paying too much attention to what his neighbors say those needs should be.” —Teddy Roosevelt
