Hello, whoever you are!
Time to see the world through my eyes!
I'm a pretty easy-going person so if you care to a leave comment, question, or suggestion about anything I write, I'll be more than happy to consider your thoughts and ideas. If you prefer to keep your anonymity, that's okay. As you can tell, I do too.
Thanks for reading and be well. :)
Fan question posed to Neil Gaiman, creator of Good Omens:
"Some of your books make it seem like you believe in actual magic, do you?"
Reply from Neil Gaiman, creator of Good Omens:
"I can write down a few words and make people thousands of miles away, whom I have never met and will never meet, laugh tears of joy and cry tears of true sorrow for people who do not exist and have never existed and never will exist. If that isn't actual literal magic, I don't know what is."
Yes, y'all. Perfection on a stick
“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape? If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
― J.R.R. Tolkien
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
"Writing isn't about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it's about enriching the lives of those who will read your work and enriching your own life as well."
Now I have made some absolutely wonderful friends here on fic.
But this statement, sent to me by my awesome husband today, is still marvelous.
"Your intuition knows what to write, so get out of the way.”
"The job of a writer is to get two interesting people into a room together, and then write down what they say."
This so perfectly describes the feeling of writing when the inspirational juices are really flowing. You're not creating the characters and their experiences, you're simply serving witness to it and recording it for the consideration of others.
Thanks to ChiefPam for relaying this excellent quote. Rock on, Awesome Woman! :D
"You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club."
*picks up club, taps it in palm of hand speculatively*
Now, let's see . . .
"Make it dark, make it grim, make it tough, but then, for the love of God, tell a joke."
Yes sir, mine liege!
“Description begins in the writer’s imagination, but should finish in the reader’s.”
― Stephen King
Ah, so that explains why I don't load down tons of description in my stories. I've been absorbing his tales since I was 11 and apparently it has had an effect. Ha.
“My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.”
― Ernest Hemingway
“There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.”
― Frank Herbert
"If you don't see the book you want on the shelf, write it."
"One of the biggest, and possibly the biggest, obstacle to becoming a writer is learning to live with the fact that the wonderful story in your head is infinitely better, truer, more moving, more fascinating, more perceptive, than anything you're going to manage to get down on paper."
*bursts into tears, flips table, storms off, pouts, comes back, continues to write*
Okay, so I'm talking to my friend, the Dragon Man, about how I've been wishing for Jedi mind powers.
And here's his brilliant response:
"These are not the Laws we voted for..." she says with a gentle wave of her hand.
"These aren't the Laws they voted for!" is replied by Congress.
"You a* can't get your s* together and make ones that are sensible..." she continues, and again in unison the large group replies.
"We are stupid, and can never get things right!"
A wide smirk crosses her face, as a lobster-clawed man wearing a new suit walks in, followed by a bald gentleman in a wheel chair.
"I have replaced you all with those who will do good..."
The group stands in unison, as this mysterious woman waves her hand again, and everyone waits for her next order.
That. Is. So. Awesome! Thank you, Dragon Man! :D
Hey, hey, hey!

Yeah, that's me in the summer after I've sent all the precious students home for summer!
Now that I've rambled on for a bit, go on and read whatever (and whoever) makes you happy!
And if it isn't me, go find somebody else!
