3 Days Quotation Challenge: Day 2

I’m back with another quotation for the 3 Days Quotation Challenge. I was nominated by Charles French to take part. Be sure to visit his blog Charles French Words Reading and Writing.

I like this quote because I truly believe a good book will find its audience. With the focus on genre and knowing your audience, I’d like to think the real focus should be the writing and the story. Call me an idealist. This quote also speaks to sharing a story because you’re compelled to do so, for no other reason than you need to write it down. It has a kind of purity that speaks to me.

Perhaps I write for no one. Perhaps for the same person children are writing for when they scrawl their names in the snow.

—Margaret Atwood

What about you? Do you care about your audience when you’re writing your story?

Guardian Angel (105)

The gift danced in her head. She envisioned a wooden reindeer with a bell for a nose, dusted with sparkles, and a candle glowing in the center. She’d seen it online and in Christmas catalogs. With her time running out, only two stores remained.

She walked into the last specialty store, harried and dazed, and did not notice the man who followed five steps behind.

He selected an item and bought it in a flash. With brilliant eyes he handed her a plush pillow. “My gift for you.”

Stunned, the woman smiled and accepted the gift.

“Now you can get some rest,” he said gently.
