The Saturday Writing Quote — on theme

“People ask me when I start one of these projects, what is your theme I haven’t the faintest idea. That’s why you’re writing the book, it seems to me, to find out. To me, it’s a journey. Its an adventure. Its traveling in a country you’ve never been in and everything is going to be new, and because of that, vivid. And don’t make up your mind too soon. Let it be an experience.”

– David McCullough, American historian and author

    • Glad you find the quote useful, Marilyn. I think it’s equally applicable to those of us who plan our stories.

  1. This is a great quote. One of the reasons I love writing fiction is that I never know where the story will lead me – or what I might enjoy learning about in the process.
