On Characters and Writers – Quotes

Two writing quotes I like from the January 2011 edition of Writer’s Digest magazine:
“Writers are the ones who don’t let failure stop them.”
— John Dufresne, “What to Do When Your Novel Stalls.” (pp. 42-45)Compelling characters are not cogs in the machine of your plot; they are human beings to whom the story happens.
David Corbett, “Hooked on a Feeling: The Emotion-Driven Method of Crafting Compelling Characters.” (pp. 32-36)

  1. “Writers are the ones who don’t let failure stop them.” How true!I checked out your profile, and saw you are from Golden. One of my best friends lives there. We moved from Colorado about three years ago to North Carolina. Ahh, we still miss the mountains!
