You know when you remember a character, or a book,
that made such an impression on you that you remember
some of their best quotes months, or even years, after
And I'm not talking only about classics such as Gone with
the Wind (loved it, btw), but recent novels from these past years as well.
My question is; do you ever wonder how could that writer think of those
memorable quotes their characters said?
I know it all comes down to creating realistic, believable characters, but I find it difficult to imagine
my characters ever being that witty, or funny, or wise, or even opportunistic! I don't know... I'm only
on my first draft, but still, I can't imagine such brilliance coming out of my mind. I think that would be one
of my favourite/greatest accomplishments, should I ever get there.
So, have you gotten there? Do you want to?
