New Month, New Quotes and a Challenge.

As I’m sure you have all noticed with the end of my Alphabetical Quotes and the start of a new month I’ve shifted to quotes by authors. This will continue for the month of September, leading up to this year’s Banned Books Week Sept 30 – Oct 8 2012, the 30th anniversary of Banned Books Week.

So each week my quotes will be by an author and have something in common.
To make things more fun each week I’m going to ask for guesses about the theme of the week.

So setting aside Zelazny (he is transitional between the alphabetical and the authors) what do you think this week’s theme was?

Roger Zelazny [Quote]

Occasionally, there arises a writing situation where you see an alternative to what you are doing, a mad, wild gamble of a way for handling something, which may leave you looking stupid, ridiculous or brilliant — you just don’t know which. You can play it safe there, too, and proceed along the route you’d mapped out for yourself. Or you can trust your personal demon who delivered that crazy idea in the first place.
Trust your demon.

Roger Zelazny, Hugo & Nebula Wining SciFi & Fantasy Author
