Five Quotes About Where Stories Come From

“Everybody Write-593333_640 walks past a thousand story ideas every day. The good writers are the ones who see five or six of them. Most people don't see any.” – Orson Scott Card

“...everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” – Sylvia Plath

“Most of the basic material a writer works with is acquired before the age of fifteen.” – Willa Cather

“Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is.” – Anne Rice

“If you look at anything long enough, say just that wall in front of you – it will come out of that wall.” – Anton Chekhov

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Orlando, Florida, or a small town like Beer Bottle Crossing, Idaho, I can provide that second eye.
