“If you strive to become a creative writer, whether it be writing novels or short stories or plays, you must become deeply involved in the lives of your characters. You have to laugh and cry and agonize with them. And this involvement doesn’t end in ‘off hours.’ Like it or not, they are with you 24 hours a day. They become part of your life as long as the story is being written.” – Dan Jorgensen
I made this comment during a talk to students at Emporia State University in Kansas during a two-day classroom and lecture series appearance there and one of the writing profs recorded it and sent it to me, (along with this photo) and said "you should share nuggets like these with a wider audience, like in your blog."
Hmmm, put a writing comment into a writing blog. Guess that IS a good idea. Happy writing!
