A is for Alive

Today is the first day in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. At first I planned on doing it. Then I thought, "Nah...don't have enough time to commit. I'm too busy working on revisions for my *agent." 

Then I came up with a fun idea. 

Brilliant quotes.

You might have noticed by now how much I love inspirational quotes and sayings. I've been going to writing conferences and workshops for years and I've compiled quite the collection of notes chock full of quotes, writing advice and sage wisdom.

Today's words of wisdom come from David Farland

David Farland/Wolvertin

I attended his Fantasy class about...er...6? years ago at WIFYR when it was still held at BYU. And he is One Awesome Dude. 

So, of course, One Awesome Dudes like him have brilliant things to say, right? Here is just one of them...



Love it. Love it. Love it.



*April Fools
