I go back to stories and books I've always liked, and read them over again and see how that author got that character out of that situation. I have many favorite stories I love to re-read, but I also like finding new ones to enjoy. Getting sucked into a story for me completely reminds me of what I want to achieve, and so re-inspires me.(less)

You know you're a writer when everything else you do during the day is just ordinary, but when you write, something magic happens and the hours just fly by as if only a moment. You're in this special writing place and it totally absorbs you.(less)

“Ethel and Frances found a means for consolation together: travel.”
Nancy Carpentier Brown

“Frances was not only grieving her sister's loss, but also striving to reconcile in her mind the tragedy with the idea of a loving God. Restless and aching, Frances climbed mountains in the Swiss Alps, where their hotel had a view of beautiful Mount Rigi.”
Nancy Carpentier Brown

“Frances cared about people. Her personality was such that she was deeply interested in making sure the people around her were happy and knew someone cared about them. She was humble and selfless, and she rarely spoke about herself, preferring to stay in the background and let the other have center stage. She had a good memory. Frances would patiently listen, and was carefully observant and noticed if someone was feeling out of sorts”
Nancy Carpentier Brown
