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

    Unfortunately I used to read a lot more then I do nowadays. Especially fiction is suffering. Only author I read anything by is Terry Pratchett. The Discworlds a looong time ago.
    I remember they were hilarious just like that quote.

    I used to read a lot more, too. There’s just so much to do these days. Luckily, I have about twenty Discworld audiobooks and I’ll listen to one of those at least a few times during the week.

    Thanks for visiting, Bram! :-)

    Actually, I had a different Discworld quote in mind for this post, but I couldn’t figure out what book it was from! That’s the problem with having read so many books by the same author.
