Writer Friends Challenge: Day 9 – Author Quote

It’s Day 9 of the Writer Friends Challenge!

Day 9 – Share a favorite author quote: Douglas Adams, the amazing author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and many more great comedic sci-fi books, has been a big influence in my writing life. I don’t necessarily write in his style or genre, but I’ve absolutely adored his books. Here’s one of my favorite quotes from him:

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”

While obviously we all have to deal with deadlines of some sort, I think it’s a fantastic reminder that we all have to write at our own pace. We must do what our story demands!

Do you have a favorite author quote?

  1. I have multiple favorite author quotes, but for now, I’ll go with “Life’s far too serious to be taken too seriously!” from Oscar Wilde. It’s true! Too much stress and work will kill you- a little frivolity every now and then brings some much needed balance!
