Monday Quote Day!

Writing is about surprising yourself. I don’t just mean the reader here; I mean the writer, too. You should be on a journey yourself when you are writing, and hopefully, you will wind up in a new place.
{Susan Breen}

First, say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.
{Thomas W. Higginson}

Writing requires passion and commitment in order to come alive. Writers write about what intrigues and compels them, what speaks to them in the same way it will speak to their readers once they find the right way to set it all down.
{Terry Brooks}

A writer’s job is to imagine everything so personally that the fiction is as vivid as our personal memories.
{John Irving}

The answers you get depend on the questions you ask.
{Thomas Kuhn}

Sandwich every bit of criticism between two layers of praise.
{Mary Kay Ash}

Forget about being a writer and become the character.
{Nancy Kress}

Books are no more threatened by Kindle than stairs by elevators. 
{Stephen Fry}

Happy Monday and happy writing, Zigzaggers!!!
