I think Stephen King said it best when he said, "Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration. The rest of us just get up and go to work."

Not kidding. Second best thing--writing a novel is like creating your own puzzle pieces then figuring out how they fit together.

“The world still has rules, we’ve just been playing with an incomplete set.”
Caitlyn McFarland, Soul of Smoke

“Wake her up,” she commanded Ashem.

The dark man folded his arms across his chest. “Politeness is the sinew that holds the wing together.”

Exasperated, Kai bared her teeth. “That is especially rich, coming from you. What is it, some kind of dragon proverb?”
