Thursday Writing Quote ~ Tom Clancy

Your characters must become as real to you as your neighbors—if they are not real to you, it’s for damned sure they will not be real to your neighbors. If they are real to you will be able to see the world through their eyes in addition to your own. – Tom Clancy


  1. Interesting quote from him, though admittedly his skills have dropped off a cliff in the last few books...

  2. I read his early books, but I think I stopped with Sum of All Fears because I didn't feel the characters were well developed. At least, not on the page. Ironic, when you think about it.
