Brin Jackson, Fantasy writer & daydreamer

Writing, fantasy, craft, sharing, chatting. It's all about books!

Monday quote

1 Comment

A scrupulous writer, in every sentence that he writes, will ask himself at least four questions, thus:

  1. What am I trying to say?
  2. What words will express it?
  3. What image or idiom will make it clearer?
  4. Is this image fresh enough to have an effect?

 

And he will probably as himself two more:

  1. Could I put it more shortly?
  2. Have I said anything that is avoidably ugly?

I'm old enough to know better, and young enough to want to learn. I am a reflexologist, fantasy writer and daydreamer.
