Saturday…Just Saying

I think I’m at the “mister”(mistress) stage but he’s
having second thoughts and is avoiding me–Karen

  1. I like this quote. It’s quite true. I get the idea and it takes more and more control slowly. I haven’t managed to slay any monsters as I’m not published yet. I hope to start killing my demons soon though.

    • Thank you for the comment Moseley. I hope your future monster slaying and demon killing are only minor skirmishes.

    • I cruise Google, “Quotes about Writing” “Author Quotes” and the like.

    This quote sounds very dramatic! I wrote a play and really enjoyed the time spent writing. Wondering what the difference between book and play is? Both have characters wanting to come to life!

    • I think creative writing is basically creative writing. Yes a play and novel require different technique and writing style but the creative process is the same.
      I think the length of work might have something to do with it.
      I think Churchill is speaking about writing on the long haul, for a fast approaching deadline, or forcing yourself to keep writing when the muse is not with you. I’ve been there lately so the comment sang to me.
