What’s In Your Writing?

Moon by Kelly A. Harmon - 23 Nov 2010“Oh, swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon,
that monthly changes in her circled orb –
Lest thy love prove likewise variable.”

Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet.

I learned this quote before I even knew who Shakespeare was. I found it in a scholastic book of superstitions that I’d purchased in grade school.

I read the quote, loved it, and committed it to memory, because even back then, I was fascinated by the moon.

There’s just something about that shiny spot in the sky that catches my fancy – so much so, that it lives in my writing, usually without any conscious effort on my part.

What lives in your writing? What fascinates you so much that it’s become a part of your writer’s tool kit?
