Writer's Wednesday: Sandra Brown quotes

Sandra Brown  knows what she's talking about. Sixty New York Times best sellers proves her prowess.


Note: Her author/actor son Ryan Brown was in my freshman dorm at the University of Oklahoma.


He was nice...and so cute! Is it just me or is he a doppelganger for Val Kilmer's Iceman from Top Gun?

So, yeah, I've paid attention to Sandra Brown ever since. 

Here are a few memorable quotes about writing from her keynote at DFW this year:

  • You get to lie for a living and you don't have to run for public office.
  • Not every idea wants to be a story. Sometimes you have to put it away.
  • Ask yourself what do you want? What are you willing to give up to get it?

Well, she asked you a couple of questions.  Go answer them!
