Sometimes the Magic Works



Resource: DeviantArt
A great source of inspiration and potential cover artists!

Inspiration: Terry Brooks, Sometimes the Magic Works

“The muse whispers to you when she chooses, and you can’t tell her to come back later, because you quickly learn in this business that she might not come back at all.”

“I have decided, on reflection, it is best just to remember that sometimes the magic really works.”

“I am incomplete without my work. I am so closely bound to it, so much identified by it, that without it I think I would crumble into dust and drift away.”

“I cannot imagine life without books any more than I can imagine life without breathing.”

“If you do not hear music in your words, you have put too much thought into your writing and not enough heart.”
 
 
That last one is one of my favorites!

  2. I think I like that last one the best. I sometimes notice when I've over-revised I start to lose that voice that came out when I did the first draft. Gotta watch for that and not lose the music. :)

  8. Lovely quotes....I too cannot imagine how life would be without books, which is why I always feel sad when a local bookstore closes.
