Sometimes I come across quotes that I just have to share. Here are a few I found in a writing book.

"Inside every human being, there is unlimited time and space: In our exterior life, we can be only one person. But in our imagination, we can be anyone, anywhere." Janet Fitch

As I've said before, writing fiction is like playing make believe again.

"If you are not discouraged about your writing on a regular basis, you may not be trying hard enough." Maxwell Perkins

In writing, I never arrive at a place that I am fully satisfied. It can always be better.

"You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what's burning inside you. And you edit to let the fire show through the smoke." Arthur Plotnik

To all my writer friends - Does one of these quotes particularly strike a cord with you? Why?

To all my reader friends - Does reading fiction take you somewhere else and allow you to be someone else? Explain.

I like the comment about being discouraged. Makes you feel better when you feel discouraged. At least you tried!!
