Maybe it's because my writing time is so limited with daughters to raise, a husband and two dogs, but to me, every moment that I can write should be productive. That doesn't mean I won't write a horrible few pages and delete them. But usually, there'll be a grain in there of something I can expand on. And those grains add up! Before you know it, you have a chapter or a short story or an essay. Perhaps the real reason I don't allow myself to have writer's block, is because I do allow myself to write the worst, most horrible pages ever written, until somehow, magically, things fall together.(less)

Quotes by Jennifer Gooch Hummer  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Love doesn't always mean rings and veils and walks down the aisle.
Sometimes love means broken windows and broken hearts,
and not being able to fix either.
And sometimes love means telling you,
there's no such thing as time in Heaven so don't rush to meet me.
Stay a while, and pick, girl, the roses.”
Jennifer Gooch Hummer, Girl Unmoored

“Love. The opposite of fear is love, and every minute of every day, we choose between the two.”
Jennifer Gooch Hummer, Girl Unmoored

“I sat there looking normal but thinking about how much I wished we were going to see the real Jesus. Everyone needed a miracle once in a while.”
Jennifer Gooch Hummer, Girl Unmoored
