Jules Renard, a.k.a Pierre-Jules Renard, was a French writer best known for Poil de Carotte, later published as Carrots in English, an ironic account of his childhood where “grim humour conceals acute sensibility.”
On writing, he says:
Writing is the best way to talk
without being interrupted
And in French, it reads:
Ecrire, c’est une façon de parler sans être interrompu
This is true. Unless of course, one of your characters comes alive and has something to say. That would be a major interruption, wouldn’t it?
Let’s hope that never happens.
Have a great weekend!
