A Quote from Churchill

Okay, everyone, I have some deadlines, which are looming and I need to get writing. But I don’t want to forget any of you either. So, I’ll be putting up a writing quote every week with a little discussion. I will also let you all know if I have any interviews or the like for that week as well.

Today’s quote is:

Before you can inspire with emotion, you must be swamped with it yourself. Before you can move their tears, your own must flow. To convince them, you must yourself believe. -- Winston Churchill

I personally love this quote and I tell my crit group this all the time. You have to live life in order to write about it. You must have a belief in yourself that no one can shake – no matter what. This is the crux of being a writer, as you have to feel to be able to effectively put it all down on paper. Think about Churchill’s world – there were daily happenings, which made one cringe, but he kept a positive attitude and became one of the best-loved and well-known statesmen of his time.

I’m just pushing for being a good author with a decent fan base. LOL!

So far this month, I was at Gracen Miller’s blog. Here’s the link:

See you all next week and have a great one!

Did you know Churchhill was a journalist before getting into politics?

My fav story attributed to Winston was that allegedly a woman at a party who detested him walked up to him and said,"Sir, if you were my husband I'd poison your drink."

To which Mr. Churchhill replied,"Madam, if I were your husband, I'd drink it."

LOL, Love it! Good quote btw.

I think I read something about that in an autobiography I had to read in college. I just love Churchill and what he stood for.

Thanks...I enjoyed looking up quotes to get the next few blogs ready...I plan to be really busy!
