Don't curtail your writing to suit what you think is most popular now. Popular fiction becomes popular because someone took a chance and wrote what they wanted to - and a lot of readers were waiting for that book. Remember: for every writer there's a reader, and for every reader there's a writer.(less)

“Abigail had no interest in the dolls themselves. Only in what she could keep from them.”
Christie Stratos, Anatomy of a Darkened Heart

“Abigail had been shown all the things to be scared of when she was young, outright. Abigail had survived. She had not only survived - she had learned. And no one could scare her anymore.”
Christie Stratos, Anatomy of a Darkened Heart

“History is the lie commonly agreed upon.”
Voltaire

“As the Wheel of Time turns, places wear many names. Men wear many names, many faces. Different faces, but always the same man. Yet no one knows the Great Pattern the Wheel weaves, or even the Pattern of an Age. We can only watch, and study, and hope.”
Robert Jordan, The Eye of the World

“I overthink.
I overfeel.
I overlive.
I overdie.”
Filipe Russo, Caro Jovem Adulto

“You don't love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.”
Oscar Wilde
