Beverly Cleary - Writing Quote - Missing Books on Shelves

Beverly Cleary Writing Quote | Source: Pinterest


Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend has been enjoyable and relaxing so far.

Before we step into a new week, I wanted to share a writing quote from Beverly Cleary, a well-known American author of Children’s and Young Adult fiction.  She says:

If you don’t see the book you want on the shelf,

write it.

My interpretation: If there’s a book missing from a shelf that’s never been written, and you believe people need to read it, you have several options.  But you should pick this one:  sit down and write it.

Her quote was more concise than mine, but you get the gist. 🙂

Have an awesome weekend.

P. S. Dear Obajimi and the sequel, Dear Morenike are available.  Help yourself.
