Quotes to Write By – Day 12

This quote is deep. So deep that I’m not even going to say anything about it. Instead, I’ll meditate on it and let it do all the talking. 🙂

Ooh la la! Look at those rows of books. Lovely books!

Alexander Chee, the author of this quote is new to me. I hope to read some of his books in the near future.

Quote #12

“Characters to me are like sonnets, they have limits that you obey which allows a force to enter in, an invention that makes the novel possible. Change the limits and the force leaves. The novel becomes impossible.”

Alexander Chee
