Quote of the Day (from Under the Whispering Door)

quote from "Under the Whispering Door" by TJ Klune

Today’s quote comes from my co-number one favorite read from last year, Under the Whispering Door: “The first time you share tea, you are a stranger. The second time you share tea, you are an honored guest. The third time you share tea, you become family.’”

Quote of the Day (from One Last Stop)

“I fell in love with you the day that I met you, and then I fell in love with the person you remembered you are. I got to fall in love with you twice. That’s – that’s magic. You’re the first thing I’ve believed in since – since I don’t even remember, okay, you’re – you’re movies and destiny and every stupid, impossible thing, and it’s not because of the fucking train, it’s because of you. It’s because you fight and you care and you’re always kind but never easy, and you won’t let anything take that away from you. You’re my hero, Jane. I don’t care if you think you’re not one. You are.”

Quote of the Day (from Wolfsong)

“Though sometimes, the songs are meant to sing a pack member home. It’s easy to get lost, Ox, because the world is a wide and scary place. And every now and then, you just have to be reminded of the way home.”

Quote of the Day (from Crown of Coral and Pearl)

“Home was not a house, or a village, or a sea. It was family, and love, and the space where your soul could roost, like a seabird safe from a storm.”

9 Quotes About Writers & Writing

Wood background with a typewriter, plant, and book on top. Text says, "9 Quotes About Writers & Writing."

9 Quotes About Writers & Writing

“Writers use everything. We can’t help it. Whatever touches us touches our writing.” Octavia E. Butler

 

“Creation is a sustained period of bliss, even though the subject can still be very sad. Because there’s the triumph of coming through and understanding that you have, and that you did it the way only you could do it. You didn’t do it the way somebody told you to do it.” Alice Walker

 

“Dialogue is character. The way that somebody talks, what they say, how they say it is character. And dialogue has to show character. It also has to show plot. And maybe it can be funny along the way.” Neil Gaiman

“A good book isn’t written, it’s rewritten.”

“Science fiction is any idea that occurs in the head and doesn’t exist yet, but soon will, and will change everything for everybody, and nothing will ever be the same again. As soon as you have an idea that changes some small part of the world you are writing science fiction. It is always the art of the possible, never the impossible.” – Ray Bradbury

 

“You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.” – Octavia E. Butler

“The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.”

“We who make stories know that we tell lies for a living. But they are good lies that say true things, and we owe it to our readers to build them as best we can. Because somewhere out there is someone who needs that story. Someone who will grow up with a different landscape, who without that story will be a different person. And who with that story may have hope, or wisdom, or kindness, or comfort. And that is why we write.” – Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

 

“So okay― there you are in your room with the shade down and the door shut and the plug pulled out of the base of the telephone. You’ve blown up your TV and committed yourself to a thousand words a day, come hell or high water. Now comes the big question: What are you going to write about? And the equally big answer: Anything you damn well want.” Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
