PEOPLE HAVE SAID...
“The most important thing I ever learned about writing is this: you don’t have to have an idea big enough to fill a book in order to start planning a book. All it takes is a tiny nugget of an idea. Often a “what if?”. What if there really was a perfume that made a woman irresistible? What if a body got tossed up in someone’s garden by an earthquake? What you have to do is prod and poke this nugget, ask it questions, research its components, play with it, and give it time to generate more ideas.” – Margaret Chittenden, Published writer of over 100 short stories and articles, three children’s books, and 30 novels
“I read my dialogue out loud to make it believable.” – Madeline Baker, Published author of 36 books and 7 novellas
“Set reachable goals–finishing the next chapter, the first draft, the first agent’s letter–and reward yourself for achieving them. This will help maintain your momentum, and reinforce a sense of ongoing progress.” – T. Davis Bunn, Best-selling author of 14 novels
“I once sent a query to a magazine that accepted queries and completed articles from writers. They rejected my query, but I still believed in the match. So, a year later, I wrote the article and sent it to the same magazine. Published!” – Kelly Boyer Sagert, Managing editor of a publishing company and published writer of over 1,000 articles
“My dad told me before he died, ‘Debbie, if other people can write books then so can you.’ I had to prove him right.” – Debbie Dadey, Co-author of over 80 books for children
“Recently, an 82-year-old woman had her first play produced in California–an adaptation of Great Expectations. She’d been a high school teacher for 60 years, and her love for Dickens never waned. Stories like that inspire me.” – Lenore Wright, Screenwriter
“The best fame is a writer’s fame. It’s enough to get a table at a good restaurant, but not enough to get you interrupted when you eat.” – Fran Leibowitz
