A writing quote

A writer's knowledge of himself, realistic and unromantic, is like a store of energy on which he must draw for a lifetime; one volt of it properly directed will bring a character alive.

(Grahame Greene)

And sometimes it is the hardest times that force us as writers to take a long hard look at ourselves, see others differently, and use that insight to create authentic meaning for our characters. Thanks for the quote.
