Wonderful quotes and words of great help and inspiration come through hard work, lessons learned the hard way, experience and most importantly, talking with your best friend!
Yesterday I was talking to the Wonderful Lizzy Hughes and she was telling me about how she was having a hard time writing scenes with one of her characters because he's so hard to work with. She said that as hard as she tried, he's one of those guys that Just. Won't. Fall. She also said something about finally putting another person (one this stubborn character loves very deeply) on a branch and cutting the branch off the tree.
Without even stopping to take a breath I replied
"When your characters won't fall, make them jump after somebody else."
Lizzy and I looked at each other. We both smiled and started laughing. I was so excited that without even meaning to I said something EPIC! So epic that one day other people will "quote" me on it and it will be known! It will help inspire other authors on their journey to finishing their novels and stories of all kinds!
