Inspirational Writing Quote #8: Barbara Kingsolver

This week’s quote comes from the very talented Barbara Kingsolver, who is most famous for The Poisonwood Bible. I am in the midst of writing my first novel and it is really hard to forget about other people during the process. Kingsolver’s quote has helped me realize that it’s my voice that counts.

Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.
