I’m a sucker for good quote. The power of words is incredible. Hence, why I have decided to choose two quotes each week for my ‘Quotes of the Week’ blog post.
This week I have chosen writing quotes, and next week…who knows? That’s all part of the fun.
Let’s get the ball rolling with a Victor Hugo quote~
‘A writer is a world trapped in a person.’
This quote sums up my feelings exactly. Did you ever feel like characters, plot twists, new worlds, are all but sprouting from your head like vines? I have to write to empty my mind, to give my characters a voice, and in summary… to keep me sane.
My second choice is, of course, a Jane Austen quote~
‘I was quiet, but I was not blind.’
Writers must observe. I have to admit that I am not particularly quiet, but I observe. Listening to natural dialogue, or witnessing subtle body languages can all aid in writing believable worlds and characters.
There you have it- my two quotes of the week. What are yours?
