Text Quotes
My fondness for extended monologue might have been encouraged by two decades of writing stage and radio dramas  (Norman Lock Quotes) For me, fiction’s great gift - to writer and reader, alike - is freedom  (Norman Lock Quotes) Metaphysics notwithstanding, I also insert myself in my fictions for no loftier purpose than to give me pleasure: to see myself performing onstage  (Norman Lock Quotes) Theatre aside, my penchant for the extended monologue began with my reading of Browning’s dramatic monologues, in high school. My inclination to adopt the form for prose was confirmed by Richard Howard’s book of dramatic monologues, Untitled Subjects  (Norman Lock Quotes) As a practical matter, I like the dramatic monologue for its compelling intimacy. To be inside one’s character, to register his or her every vagrant thought, emotion, and response - the first-person viewpoint grants this privilege and immediacy  (Norman Lock Quotes) Because of an instability at my own core, it comforts me to live, fixed, within a story. If reading is our consolation for having been allotted only one life, I find that writing oneself into a fictional world is even more comforting  (Norman Lock Quotes) I’m too ambitious to give another man credit, even if that other man is only myself in disguise.  (Norman Lock Quotes) For me, fiction’s great gift - to writer and reader, alike - is freedom  (Norman Lock Quotes) A first-person voice helps to ensure the uniformity and cohesiveness of the narrative; it gathers unto itself incidents and characters in its unstoppable progress toward the story’s end.  (Norman Lock Quotes) I don’t know about ground rules; but I create the world that arrives with the characters or situation or voice in my head that instigates the piece, whatever form it may take  (Norman Lock Quotes) It may be old hat, but I see no reason to close off what is for me a fruitful subject of inquiry, especially so for one, like me, who is very much interested in creating stories and novels of ideas  (Norman Lock Quotes) I do seem to favor a deathbed confession as the occasion for my dramatic monologues  (Norman Lock Quotes) I used to teach writing in a federal prison, and for my students’ benefit, I would liken the narrative use of this highly personal point of view to a boxer’s getting in close to his opponent  (Norman Lock Quotes) A first-person voice helps to ensure the uniformity and cohesiveness of the narrative; it gathers unto itself incidents and characters in its unstoppable progress toward the story’s end  (Norman Lock Quotes) I do believe we are actors in our own dramas, which, moment by moment, we ourselves write; that we are characters in our own fictions or those devised for us by someone or something else  (Norman Lock Quotes) I admitted that I did not understand life. What I meant was that I am bewildered by human hearts and motivations, including my own  (Norman Lock Quotes) I tell myself that, regardless of what source I draw on, I’m writing a new work for reasons peculiar to me and not an adaptation, and so feel, in the end, justified in singing it my way  (Norman Lock Quotes) I haven’t the stature to critique one of our literature’s great novels, Tobias; and I’m not one of those who believe The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn needs critiquing for literary or social reasons  (Norman Lock Quotes) Each piece of writing I undertake, whether a story, novel, play, or poem, begins with an image  (Norman Lock Quotes) I’m too ambitious to give another man credit, even if that other man is only myself in disguise  (Norman Lock Quotes) I don’t know about ground rules; but I create the world that arrives with the characters or situation or voice in my head that instigates the piece, whatever form it may take.  (Norman Lock Quotes)
