Friday Writing Inspiration from Neil Gaiman

neil-gaiman-writing-quote

I’m finally back to doing my regular Friday afternoon writing inspiration. And boy, do I need inspiration, because between The Romantics coming out and getting married, I am way behind on all my deadlines.

Anyway, this one comes from fellow children’s book author and storyteller extraordinaire, Neil Gaiman: “Stories may well be lies, but they are good lies that say true things, and which can sometimes pay the rent.” ― Neil Gaiman

Key word, sometimes! And we’re really lucky when it does.

I really like this quote because it reminds me of what I was going for in The Romantics. It might not be my own love story, but there’s elements of my own experiences on every page. And I’m hoping that even though it’s all technically a “lie,” that it will feel true to readers out there.

Happy Friday and happy reading!
