“Fiction is life with the dull bits left out.”
Australian critic, broadcaster, and writer, Clive James
American film director Alfred Hitchcock had a very similar one-liner:
“Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.”
I don’t know if Clive or Alfred said it first, but I think both quotes work. As writers and bloggers, do you agree?
