Quote It! Meg Cabot

“Write the kind of story you would like to read. People will give you all sorts of advice about writing, but if you are not writing something you like, no one else will like it either.”

–Meg Cabot, American author of romantic and paranormal fiction for teens and adults. Best known for The Princess Diaries.


This is an interesting variation on the standard writing advice to “write what you know.” It made me think about what I write. Am I writing what I’d like to read? I think I am.

I write stories about people on the cusp of some sort of emotional disaster—people who are walking a fine line between who they are and who God wants them to be.

What are your stories about? Are they written for you or for someone—or something—else?

Michael Ehret, for Writing on the Fine Line
