3 awesome quotes about writing by Kurt Vonnegut

every sentence must do one of 2 things, reveal a character of advance the action

I found these great quotes about writing which I think is great advice for roleplayers:

  • Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
  • Every sentence must do one of two things-reveal character or advance the action.
  • Be a Sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them-in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
