Quote of the Week and Week to Come

"When you're writing a book, with people in it as opposed to animals, it is no good having people who are ordinary, because they are not going to interest your readers at all. Every writer in the world has to use the characters that have something interesting about them, and this is even more true in children's books."
Roald Dahl (September 13, 1916 - November 23, 1990)
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
James and the Giant Peach

  1. And interesting is usually internal. Dress them up however you want, but plots don't make the characters, their thoughts and actions do.
