Quote of the Week, Week to Come & I Write Because...


"The story I am writing exists, written in absolutely perfect fashion, some place, in the air.  All I must do is find it, and copy it." -Jules Renard, Diary, February 1895


This week on Writing From the Peak...

...This month's letter from the editor.

...Love. True Love. By Mandy Houk


And this week's I Write Because... quotes, as taken from the board at PPWC 2013:

I write because...

"I was once told I couldn't."

"In a world filled with tragedy I want to spread love and joy with my happily ever afters."

"I think I have something to say. I'm still catching up for never speaking in childhood. I can't help myself when it comes to a tale - especially one filled with hyperbole. [...]"

"If I don't, I'm awakened by my characters screaming at me in my head."

"I must!"

"The story needs to be told."

"The ideas must go somewhere."

"I had a dream that I want to tell to others."

"If Taylor Swift can do it, so can I! Also, because alcoholism isn't paying the bills!"
