One of my favorite writing quotes. Feel free to share yours.

The people in the story (characters) shall be alive, except in the case of the corpses, and the reader should be able to tell the corpses from the others. Mark Twain


  1. “Books aren’t written—they’re rewritten. Including your own. It’s one of the hardest things to accept, especially after the seventh rewrite hasn’t quite done it.”
    -Michael Crichton

  2. I've got two favorite writing quotes, both of them from a movie:

    "I'm a writer. I give the truth scope!" -- Chaucer in A Knight's Tale

    "I will eviscerate you in fiction. Every last pimple. Every last character flaw. I was naked for a day. You will be naked for eternity." -- Chaucer in A Knight's Tale

    Love them!


  3. Hey, Jill! Welcome to the land of blogging. :)

    I'm so worn out right now I can't even think of a quote. But I'll head back over if one occurs to me. :) I love the ones already shared.
