Have you ever watched a movie or read a book and there was a line or two or three that just “got you?”..I have. I always wish I wrote that line.
Then I start to second guess myself and wonder if I am a good writer or just a communicator that communicates better in writing–and if that is the case, then aren’t I still a writer?
My genre I guess has been poetry. My talent. It’s not the norm or the usual. It’s UNusual. I have written this before. Give me a subject and I can crank out a poem or is it prose…that rhymes–thus my story from many posts past about wanting to write cards when young..thinking I could waltz right in the door of a card company and ask the Person In Charge to give me a subject, any subject, perhaps a few details and show my Masterpiece. Yes, I was very Young and Naive…however—here are some of my favorite Movie lines that I wish I wrote.
