“In Their Own Words“
Leah Fleming – Author Of ‘Mothers And Daughters’
It is always good to be able to highlight a quote or few lines of text, that have been attributed directly to an author that I have enjoyed reading; as unscripted, unrehearsed statements can quite often open the door onto the true personality of that person, highlight just what motivates them and, most importantly, to hopefully learn from where they glean their inspiration.
These are some of her own words…
“To write well you have to punch above your weight, reading authors far more skilled than you will ever be.
Quality will out and I hope by osmosis some of it will seep through into my own prose.
If I ever stop reading for pleasure, escape or instruction, that will be the time to quit writing too.”
