Day 8 ~ The Book Thief

Book quote

“I like that every page in every book can have a gem on it. It’s probably what I love most about writing–that words can be used in a way that’s like a child playing in a sandpit, rearranging things, swapping them around. They’re the best moments in a day of writing — when an image appears that you didn’t know would be there when you started work in the morning.”

Often when I am writing, where I start is not where I end. I often feel that while I am writing, something takes over and these words and thoughts pour out in ways I didn’t expect. I look at writing as a part of my soul. So when I write, I am letting my soul express itself in ways it otherwise would have been forced to remain in silence.
