Quote of the Week

"Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader- not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon."
~ E.L. Doctorow ~

I love it. Funny, too. I just wrote a scene involving rain.

Great quote, Holly. I'm writing a scene with my American heroine seeing Munich for the first time. But I don't want to describe Munich - I want the reader to feel how Munich is, but I'm struggling with it. This writing stuff is not such a piece of cake!

I saw this quote in the restroom of my Yoga class that I thought you'd like - "Sometimes the only means of transportation available to you is a leap of faith." - Mary Shepherd. It really touched me, especially as a new writer, not knowing if anything will come of all this writing! ;-)

Happy writing and momming, Holly!
