Five Quotes about Writing – Part 2

suri hudstedt what i love

“All novel writing
is personal.

A question
I have been
asking myself recently
Why one story
and not another?

A fiction writer
can write anything,
after all,
she does not.

How does
a novelist know
when a story
is right
or wrong?”

~ Siri Hustvedt

      Our lives are made up of stories
      While recording – we actualize them
      A dream – our endings belong to us

      The pen – the laptop – the Dragon
      We write – we click keys – we speak
      Our methods all have consequences

      Words fly out when the Muse awakens
      Clues leading to breaking through
      Barriers pulled down – the pen writes

      Clues – words – ink – paper – screen
      Cleverly whispered phrases
      Ideas are formed – developed

      A story is created
      A sign of relief
      No one is lost yet
