So I’m going to share one page at a time of my common place book, every other Friday. So that would mean the next time, I post about my commonplace book would be on Decemeber 23, 2016. Here we go!
Beware you writers who write within;
Be mindful of the stories you begin;
For every story has a beginning
May have a middle and an end.
Know this too, before you write;
Though day must come to night,
Not all beginnings make good talks;
Some succeed, while others fail.
Let this book its judgement lend
On whether and how your beginning ends.
-The Book of Story Beginnings –Kristin Kladstrup
How often have I said to you when you have eliminated the impossible whatever remains however impossible, must be the truth.
-Sherlock Holmes – The Sign of Four – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
It does people good to do things they don’t like, in a sense of moderation.
-Anne Shirley – Lucy Modd Montgomery (of all of them on this page, this one is my favorite)
