WriterzBlox~Quote of the Week~ April 12th, 2013

“This is our goal as writers, I think; to help others have this sense of–please forgive me–wonder, of seeing things anew, things that can catch us off guard, that break in on our small, bordered worlds. When this happens, everything feels more spacious. Try walking around with a child who’s going, “Wow, wow! Look at that dirty dog! Look at that burned-down house! Look at that red sky!” And the child points and you look, and you see, and you start going, “Wow! Look at that huge crazy hedge! Look at that teeny little baby! Look at the scary dark cloud!” I think this is how we are supposed to be in the world–present and in awe.”

“Usually, when people get
to the end of a chapter,
they close the book
and go to sleep.
I deliberately write my
books so when the reader
gets to the end of a chapter,
he or she must turn
one more page.
When people tell me
I’ve kept them up all night,
I feel like I’ve succeeded!

~Sidney Sheldon
