One-Liner Wednesday – Creations


“…it is delusion to assume that the creator controls his creations and that an attempt to exert such control while ignoring the true nature of those creations is doomed to failure.”

~ Diana Gabaldon, as William on page 470 of An Echo in the Bone, in reference to writing fictional characters in a play.


Anyone who would like to try it out, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday, if you see a ping back from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

The rules that I’ve made for myself for “One-Liner Wednesday” are as follows:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Make it either funny or inspirational.

Have fun!

  12. It’s absolutely true! When I try to control my characters and read the scene back, it sounds stale, stilted, and worthy as a wrapping for leftover fish. But when I let them control the action and the dialogue while I take care of the bones of the writing, the words come alive on the page. 🙂


  13. No doubt in my mind that Diana had children.


  14. Just remembered this one: “smile a while and while you smile, some other will smile and soon there will be miles and miles of smiles”.
    Don’t know if I remember it exact word to word..but well, there you go 🙂
