August Comment of the Month Winner!

Thanks to everyone who leaves us comments on our From the Vault posts! As usual, we had some great answers and choosing our winner was difficult.

Without further ado, in answer to the question What’s your favorite inspirational writing quote, and why?

Christina_Kit left us this month's winning response!

She said:

A writer only begins a book. A reader finishes it." from Samuel Johnson. It's so so true, that it's a partnership and it reminds us that we have to write real, not assume the reader won't "get it", and it's the best way to strive for the best we can while accepting that our real goal is to let the words and our story live a totally separate life in the reader. (also a good way of making sense of bad reviews - all readers are different). 
Also "Appearance blinds, whereas words reveal."-Oscar Wilde Which is so true about EVERYTHING and EVERYONE (and a good way of making sure to create unconventional characters who act differently than we expect them to based on their appearance.)

Congrats Christina! Love the insight into the writer/reader relationship. Drop us an email at yaconfidential [at] gmail [dot] com and tell us what you'd like from The Book Depository as your prize!
