Each author has submitted their favorite inspirational quote, so this month I won't be adding my usual quote. 
Thank you, authors!


Jen Chandler, The Mysteries of Death and Life

"Keep working. Follow the shape of your mind's particulars (its rhythms, its oddities) like a bloodhound, and take the 'narrative' as far as you possibly can, so that the words are utterly yours, so that you're writing in that singular way that singular thing NO ONE but you can write. Each time." ―Ari Banias, poet, From an interview in the Jan/Feb 2017 issue of Poets & Writers Magazine


L. Nahay, Breath Between Seconds

"A writer is a world trapped within a person." ―Victor Hugo

Don't miss the July 30 deadline for the next IWSG Anthology. 





For all My Email Connect Peeps I'm offering a free mobi or mp3 of a short story from the anthology, Beware the Little White Rabbit. 

Have you read an anthology lately?

  9. Hi, Cheryl!

    I am mesmerized by the covers of the short story anthologies Hero Lost and Beware the Little White Rabbit. The quotes you posted are all excellent. I especially like the one by Ari Banias. It resonates because I have found myself in that glorious zone - floodgates thrown open and words, my own words, flowing fast and freely.

    Happy holiday to you and yours, dear friend!

  12. Terrific quotes and nice inspiration. I suppose now I'll have to put Hero Lost on my list of future reads . . .

  13. Good quotes. I definitely relate to the 'World trapped...' quote. I often feel like I write just because I'd go insane otherwise from the things in my head.

  16. Using quotes is a logical approach and definitely gives readers another way to remember the author.
