The Morning Munchies Quotes for Writers ~ Jean M. Auel...

The Land of Painted Caves: A Novel (Earth's Children) Author, Jean M. Auel, is due to release her book on the 29th of March, 2011, so It's time to celebrate!
Here's some quotes from one of my favorite writers (and hopefully one of yours)...

The Clan of the Cave Bear (Earth's Children, Book One)I can move my characters through it easily, because I understand the background; I've really studied it.

I probably read 100 times more than I write, but that way when I move my characters through it, I know.

The Valley of Horses (Earth's Children, Book Two)And that's how I start myself. I usually go back a couple of pages, maybe to the beginning of the chapter, and I start reading. And as I'm reading, I'm tweaking - putting in a different word, changing the syntax, putting that clause over there, you know that sort of thing.
The Mammoth Hunters (Earth's Children, Book Three)I started writing to please myself, a story I would like to read, and that is still true.
The Shelters of Stone. Jean M. Auel (Earths Children 5)Life sometimes gets in the way of writing.
