I found the above quote in September 2009, The Artist's Magazine. I dabble in color pencil botanicals and pick up the occassional issue. I think the quote applies in a big way to writers so I thought I'd share it.
The above quote could also apply to kisses - speaking of which my first kiss scene is done and off to my critque partners for review. I'm think of entering it in a contest. I'll see if I can get my act together for the October 1 deadline. (still have to write a set-up scene to let the judges know what happen prior to kiss and incorporate any changes suggested by my circle of 3 or 4 if you include me)
