#Quoted is one space through which I wish to introduce some amazing writers, lesser-known, but great when it comes to the art.
Today, let’s talk aboutMadeleine L’Engle. Have you have read any of her books? She wrote children’s books primarily. But it was her adult fiction novels that won her a gamut of awards, honors, and medals.
Did you know her novel A Wrinkle in Time was voted the number two children’s novel behind Charlotte’s Web. With a ‘Lifetime Achievement’ from the ‘World Fantasy Awards’ to the ‘National Humanities Medal’, she was not only an amazing writer but an equally inspiring figure; someone to look up to.
Here’s one of her quotes that I’ve pledged to follow till my last breath. Do the same and it’ll do you much good.
One of her other quotes that’s stayed with me since I was kid is this:
“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
That’s all for today, folks!
What did you think of the advice? Of the three things, Late Ms. L’Engle asks writers to follow, how many do you find worth your time?
Be reading. Be writing. 🙂
