My other writer friends from college became teachers, or went into journalism, but I didn't want anything else telling me that I was a writer. What I mean is, a journalist or an editor can still feel like a writer, even if they haven't touched their novel in weeks. But I didn't have that, if I wasn't writing, then I wasn't a writer, and if I wasn't a writer- Well not being a writer was an unacceptable idea. (less)

“This book is a treasure; I did not suspect it would be so good when I picked it up, but now I can feel the printed words seeping through my skin and into my veins, rushing to my heart and marking it forever.

I want to savor this wonder, this happening of loving a book and reading it for the first time, because the first time is always the best, and I will never read this book for the first time ever again.”
Laura Nowlin, If He Had Been with Me

“I've loved him my whole life, and somewhere along the way, that love didn't change but grew. It grew to fill the parts of me that I did not have when I was a child. It grew with every new longing of my body and desire until there was not a piece of me that did not love him. And when I look at him, there is no other feeling in me.”
Laura Nowlin, If He Had Been with Me

“Just because something seems impossible doesn´t mean that you shouldn´t try.”
Laura Nowlin, If He Had Been with Me
