"I think with every writer there are two people there"

- Hugh Leonard

About this Quote

In this quote, Hugh Leonard is suggesting that every writer has 2 unique personalities within them. On one hand, there is the person who exists in the real world, with their own experiences, thoughts, and feelings. On the other hand, there is the writer, who has the ability to create and picture worlds, characters, and stories that might be totally different from their own truth. Leonard is acknowledging the duality of a writer's identity and how they have the ability to use both aspects of themselves in order to develop meaningful and impactful pieces of composing. This quote highlights the intricacy and depth of the writing process and the special capabilities of writers to bring their inner selves to life through their work.
