Literary Link – Holly Lisle on using your weakness

I’ve been following author Holly Lisle for years, both because she’s a great writer and because she’s incredibly generous when it comes to sharing her writing and industry knowledge.  She’s also hilarious.  If you haven’t already, you should check out her website.  I’m one of her email subscribers, and this morning I received a great note about how our own unique, personal weaknesses can make for powerful writing:

Humor comes from pain. From being human. From knowing how wrong you sometimes get things, and then putting that knowledge, and that embarrassing truth, into your work right along with the moments when you give your characters your strengths that let them shine like stars and fly like a rocket.

Every once in a while, let ’em trip, too.

That’s a comforting thought; our weaknesses are also our strengths.

Have a great weekend.
