An inspiring quote

There are times when lines and phrases in books, movies and other mediums speak to you. They inspire you, make you think, and most importantly, inspire me to create.

This exchange, from one of my favorite tv shows, Bones, is one that caught my attention.

Dr. Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan: Well, anthropologically speaking, paramilitaristic organizations tend to constrain individuality.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: That’s for sure.
Dr. Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan: But in any group, no matter how restrictive, the free thinkers, the mavericks, the rebels with leadership qualities find a way to declare their distinctiveness.

The meaning, to me, is that no matter what tries to keep you down, your true personality and creativity will always be there. It will find its way to the surface, despite anything in its way.

I like that. I like that idea that any character will “declare their distinctiveness.” To me, it means so much more than that, and I really want every character I create to show how they are different, and what their true colors are.

What quotes inspire you?

I'm a lover of writing and books. I graduated from South Dakota State with a master's degree in communications in 2011, the same year I was first published. I'm a wife and mom, and I work in content and digital marketing in South Dakota.
