Finally Friday - Fiction


Finally Friday is here. This week has been a beast. I've been typing a lot, but it's boring work documents.  No time for fiction.  But let's look at a few pithy quotes on the subject. It makes me feel like I've been a writer. 

Fiction is the highest autobiography - Saul Bellow

Fiction is Truth's elder sister. Obviously
No one in the world knew what truth was till somebody had told a story  
Rudyard Kipling


Fiction is like a spider's web, attached ever so lightly perhaps
but still attached to life at all four corners
Often the attachment is scarcely perceptible
Virginia Woolf


Happy Friday everyone - fact or fiction - make it a good one and enjoy the weekend

  1. Tell the story and let the fiction take hold then the facts shall follow.

    1. My fave is the Virginia Woolf quote. I like the fragility of a spider web, yet so strong too.

  9. I used to blog a lot about things going on in my life with my kids etc. I don't do that so much these days. We have had really weird things happening with circumstances. I'm sure some people that read my blog thought I was creating fiction (sadly I wasn't and worse yet I never told the whole story to protect privacy :)

    These days I'm reading a lot of fiction, angst stories but it helps me cope :)

    Happy weekend!

    1. Truth can be stranger than fiction. Often a fine line

  11. Love these quotes. I'm slowly coming around to working on my brand new novel, which went on hold over Christmas... I realised, recently, that Christmas is over?

    Hope you've managed to fiction over the weekend :-)
