Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Really Good Writing . . .

20 Jan

Hello everyone! It’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday! I hope you are all doing well. My day has been hectic, as usual, but I wanted to take a little time to post this great quote by author Ann Voskamp. I can relate to what she says in her quote because when I write and read It’s like a movie playing out in my mind. Sometimes I don’t know where I’m going to go from a certain scene but as I see it play out I get ideas to go on. I guess that is what ‘being in the zone’ is. When you can hear the crunch of dirt giving under a character’s foot step and smell the fragrance or stench in the air––you’re there. 😉

    That’s great Vashti. I love this part: “So that the reader knows that you were really there, that you really experienced it.” That says it all for me. Authenticity. Love it.
    Have a great rest of the week sweetie.
    🙂 ❤

    This is so true. I’ve always been trying to improve my craft in a way that any reader could both see from my POV and experience the story themselves. 🙂 🙂 Great quote, Vashti!
