Words that are Speaking to Me

I don’t create characters so much as I make room inside my heart for them to come and get me. I am drawn to characters who make me feel deeply — make me mad, confuse me, make me wonder, break my heart, stagger me with what they are up against.

Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.

  1. Love the quote–and the idea that writers make room inside their hearts (and heads?!) for characters. I think that maybe the characters that do these things for authors are also the ones that do it for us as readers.
