Celebrating the A to Z Blogging Challenge with quotations on the writing life.
Two questions form the foundation of all novels: ‘What if?’ and ‘What next?’ (a third question, ‘What now?’ is the one an author asks himself every 10 minutes or so; but it’s more a cry than a question.) Every novel begins with the speculative question, What if X happened? That’s how you start.
Another leftover post from last year. I don’t ask as many “What If” questions about real life these days. I focus instead on what I can be thankful for.
