Writer’s Quote Wednesday

It’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday over at SilverThreading.com in collaboration with RonovanWrites.com
Here are my quotes this week:

“Each writer is born with a repertory company in his head. Shakespeare has perhaps 20 players. … I have 10 or so, and that’s a lot. As you get older, you become more skillful at casting them.”
—Gore Vidal

I never quite thought of building characters like that. But it makes sense. I guess my company is made of the people I come in contact with two steady players walking through different scenes.  An interesting thought

Now for the next quote:

“Literature is strewn with the wreckage of men who have minded beyond reason the opinions of others.”
—Virginia Woolf

These quotes I find have important lessons I think. My favorite though is the Virginia Woolf. I can see how not standing your ground when it comes to your work could lead to no good. I was having flashes of Hemingway as I read that quote.
I went on a dig for more information on her and I found this link: Virginia Woolf
