Literary Birthday – 15 November – Carole Nelson Douglas

Happy Birthday, Carole Nelson Douglas, born 15 November 1944.


  1. Never argue with a librarian; they know too much.
  2. A story is its own magical form of transport and it will accept aboard as many weary, tired, or hurting passengers as care to book passage.
  3. Winning is nothing unless the opponent is worthy.
  4. Don’t out think yourself. Let your imagination fly. Don’t censor yourself. Don’t edit yourself until you have a page or a chapter to look over the next day. Writing a novel is like white water rafting: you know you’re going to get somewhere, and it may be a bumpy ride, but you need that momentum to stay afloat. (source)
  5. An author really can’t afford to listen to anything but the muse. (source)
