Literary Birthday – 16 March – Margaret Weis

Happy Birthday, Margaret Weis, born 16 March 1948.

Seven Quotes

  1. Hope is the denial of reality.
  2. I like working closely with artists. I think that’s very important in fantasy and science fiction – the visual aspect of the worlds and the characters.
  3. Keep reading. Keep writing. Keep your day job.
  4. Be the hero of your own life. Don’t let somebody else play that role.
  5. Words can never fully say what we want them to say, for they fumble, stammer, and break the best porcelain. The best one can hope for is to find along the way someone to share the path, content to walk in silence, for the heart communes best when it does not try to speak.
  6. There are benefits to writing both singly and with a co-author. If I write by myself, I have to come up with solutions to the problems I always create for myself. (Writing myself into a corner.) When I’m writing with Tracy, I can call him and dump the problem in his lap.
  7. Because writing is my livelihood, I can’t wait to be inspired! I write every day that I’m home and as much as I can when I’m travelling. I find ideas in lots of things, such as eavesdropping on conversations in restaurants.
