This week, I’m looking to some of my favorite authors for inspiration. Here’s some interesting quotes to jump-start your creativity and get you writing your own story.
“‘Life is wasted on the living.'” Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
“‘Don’t put your trust in revolutions. They always come around again. That’s why they’re called revolutions. People die, and nothing changes.'” Terry Pratchett, Night Watch
“It was irritating to have one’s physical shortcomings pointed out quite so plainly twice in one evening…” Tom Holt, Expecting Someone Taller
“‘You bastard!’ This burst out of me before I could stop it. I regretted it at once, but it was too late.” Steven Brust, Taltos
