芭芭拉·路易丝·默茨(Barbara Mertz)名言

I am so tired of ruggedly handsome heroes. I don't know too many ruggedly handsome people who are necessarily nice people. In fact, the beautiful people have a big handicap because they rely too much on their appearance and don't bother to become interesting.

我厌倦了英俊的英雄。我不认识太多刚毅英俊的人,他们一定是好人。事实上,漂亮的人有一个很大的障碍,因为他们太依赖自己的外表,而懒得变得有趣。

芭芭拉·路易丝·默茨

I have no writing habit. I work when I feel like it, and I work when I have to - mostly the latter.

我没有写作的习惯。我想工作的时候就工作,不得不工作的时候就工作——大部分是后者。

芭芭拉·路易丝·默茨

Getting an idea for a book is not the problem, but you need 300 ideas - an idea a page.

想一本书不是问题,但你需要300个点子-一个点子一页。

芭芭拉·路易丝·默茨

Sometimes the characters develop almost without your knowing it. You find them doing things you hadn't planned on, and then I have to go back to page 42 and fix things. I'm not recommending it as a way to write. It's very sloppy, but it works for me.

有时角色的发展几乎是在你不知道的情况下。你发现他们在做你没有计划的事情,然后我不得不回到第42页去解决问题。我不推荐用它来写作。这很草率,但对我很管用。

芭芭拉·路易丝·默茨

I can do a book in three months if I spend all day, seven days a week at it and, in fact, I work better that way.

我可以在三个月内完成一本书,如果我花一整天,一周七天在上面,事实上,这样我工作得更好。

芭芭拉·路易丝·默茨

I've been reading ghost stories ever since I could read. I'm immensely curious about ghosts and UFOs and all that stuff, but I'm a very hard-headed person.

我从能读起就一直在读鬼故事。我对鬼魂和不明飞行物之类的东西非常好奇,但我是一个非常固执的人。

芭芭拉·路易丝·默茨

I do, however, think it would be difficult to write books I don't like to read.

然而,我确实认为写我不喜欢读的书是困难的。
