I’m inspired by almost everything I come across in life, and one way or another they find themselves sneaking into my stories.

Don’t ever let the other stuff get in the way of your inherent skills as a kick-butt storyteller. Move the reader, make them happy and sad and excited and scared. Make them stare into space after they’ve put the book down, thinking about the tale that’s become a part of them.

    • Thank you very much for your kind feedback, Diana. 🙂
      It was exciting to find these Dashner quotes (nearly) in the wink of an eye.

  1. Don’t ever let the other stuff get in the way of your inherent skills as a kick-butt storyteller. Move the reader, make them happy and sad and excited and scared. Make them stare into space after they’ve put the book down, thinking about the tale that’s become a part of them. Thats it, thats good writing!

  2. Love them all but particularly the third one and it is quite a feeling when you finish a special book that leaves you staring into space, just thinking, pondering – a story that stays with you long after.

    • Thank you very much for your feedback, Annika. I love them all as well. The second one is similar to one of my 10 statements, regarding the third one – I couldn’t agree more.
