Text Quotes
I tend to navigate by indirection, meaning that most of the major things in my life have happened when I’ve been thinking about something else.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) There’s nothing so attractive as a blank slate. Take one attractive man, slap on a thick coat of daydream, and voila, the perfect man. With absolutely no resemblance to reality.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) Purple Plumeria’ I dithered over for months and then wrote the whole thing between the beginning of July and end of August. The dithering and procrastination time was three times the writing times.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) The minimum I need is six months to allow for dithering, procrastination and the research. The research times varies from book to book; some are faster because they’re based off resources I have at my disposal.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) I’ve had mainstream readers complain that the book is really a romance, and romance readers complain that the book isn’t a romance - with the same book! It really depends on the individual reader’s expectations going into the story, and that’s very hard to predict person to person.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) Colin mustered a perfunctory leer, but his mind was obviously elsewhere. ‘Do you know...’ he began.I knew many things, but I didn’t think he needed to hear the entirety of the Prologue to the Canterbury Tales right at just this moment.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) I’ve been typed as historical fiction, historical women’s fiction, historical mystery, historical chick lit, historical romance - all for the same book.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) My own inclination is to skew towards humor. They say that some people view life as a comedy, others as a tragedy. Me? Comedy all the way.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) One of our fundamental human needs is finding our partner that we hope we will stay with for the rest of our lives. You often find the same search in other genres. The mystery novel has a romance subplot. Literary novels often focus on that relationship but do not often end well.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) I hadn’t realized quite how intense the first few years of grad school would be. When you’re being assigned 40 books a week... there’s not much room for novels.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) Iris Johansen’s lovers weathered the sack of city states and the vagaries of the French Revolution; Judith McNaught’s heroines endured amnesia, social ostracism and misunderstandings so big they deserved their own ZIP code.  (Lauren Willig Quotes) I know historians aren’t supposed to fall in love with their own theories, but I was head over heels about the notion of an entire band of female French agents, like a nineteenth-century Charlie’s Angels. Only better. It made the Pink Carnation’s organization look positively humdrum  (Lauren Willig Quotes) But that initial, comet-blazing-across-the-sky, Big Idea is only the beginning. Each book is composed of a mosaic of thousands of little ideas, ideas that invariably come to me at two in the morning when my alarm is set for seven  (Lauren Willig Quotes) The French just said he was a damned nuisance. Or they would have had they the good fortune to speak English. Instead being French they were forced to say it in their own language  (Lauren Willig Quotes) They were close enough that he could feel the hurried beat of her heart. He could feel Charlotte’s indecision in every word she didn’t say and every move she didn’t make. She was tense with uncertainty, quivering with irresolution. She might not be leaning into him, but she wasn’t pulling away, either  (Lauren Willig Quotes) It is a truth universally acknowledged that one only comes up with clever, cutting remarks long after the other party is happily slumbering away  (Lauren Willig Quotes) Love doesn’t attack; it infiltrates  (Lauren Willig Quotes) Amazing what the application of a knitting needle could do for one’s manners  (Lauren Willig Quotes) Why was it that cheering expressions were invariably so infuriating?  (Lauren Willig Quotes) Patience is only a virtue when there is something worth waiting for  (Lauren Willig Quotes) It was the usual sort of academic battle: footnotes at ten paces, bolstered by snide articles in academic journals and lots of sniping about methodology, a thrust and parry of source and countersource. My sources had to be better  (Lauren Willig Quotes) There is, I have heard, a little thing called sunrise, in which the sun reverses the process we all viewed the night before. You might assume such a thing as mythical as those beasts that guard the corners of the earth, but I have it on the finest authority, and have, indeed, from time to time, regarded it with my own eyes  (Lauren Willig Quotes) There’s nothing so attractive as a blank slate. Take one attractive man, slap on a thick coat of daydream, and voila, the perfect man. With absolutely no resemblance to reality  (Lauren Willig Quotes) It was lovely to see cynicism in one so young. It positively restored his faith in human nature  (Lauren Willig Quotes)
