I will come right out and say, I love good quotes, especially about writing. Such being the case, allow me to warn you in advance: many of my posts will most likely feature or derive from some random quote that I took a fancy to that week. 😉
This probably sums up almost every urge to write that I have ever had.
How many times while reading have you come across a small jewel of a thought that stuck with you and made you think, “It would be cool if someone took that concept and took it farther, or maybe in a totally different direction. Someone should write that story.”
The good news is, you thought of it, possibly before anyone else. The question is, what are you gonna do with it? I mean really, you thought of it, so who better to carry on with it than its originator? Who knows better how this story should go than you, the person who is right now wishing it into existence? If you are a writer, you have been given a gift and an opportunity that would be a shame to squander. You have the chance to create something that no one else can make, because no one else can write like you.
