I love a good quote. I have a little notebook sitting on my bookshelf. On the front is a picture of Elijah Wood as Frodo. The inside is filled with pearls of wisdom. While the letter Q could stand for quail, queen or quilt, query or quintessential, I decided today I would go with quote.
Here's a few good one's I found:
"Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader—not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon."
"The difference between reality and fiction? Fiction has to make sense."
Once the itch of literature comes over a man, nothing can scratch it but a pen.
Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way. -E. L. Doctorow
