Writer’s Quote Wednesday // Nicola Yoon

  1. The quote is so true! I love it!

    I often wake up in the middle of the night with the next thing I should write in my head. Then I sometimes fall asleep, only to wake with a different thought: “Now, what was it that I thought of in the night?”

    Occasionally, I will get up and scribble down a prompt for myself, which I can read the next morning.

    The biggest and best exception to this was when I was writing my debut novel, Eleven Miles last year. I woke up at four in the morning with the perfect ending to the story. I got up and sat there till dawn, writing it. I was only about one-third of the way through writing the book at the time, yet, when I came to the end a few weeks later, I changed nothing. My night thoughts, half-asleep, fitted just right.

    So thanks for a great quote!


    1. Glad you liked it! I hate when I don’t get up to write the thought down and I forget in the morning. It’s so frustrating to know I had a great idea in the middle of the night but I can’t remember it, and it’s probably gone forever.

      That’s very cool about your novel! I may have to try 4 am writing when I start mine :)
