A Wonderful Quote: I Am Telling You Your Story

“Child,” said the Voice, “I am telling you your story, not hers. I tell no one any story but his own.”


from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Horse and His Boy, by C. S. Lewis

  1. In my h.s. creative writing classroom, Darla, I had the poster with this quote. It’s one of my favorites. I used it to remind my writing students the truth about good stories. They aren’t just the author’s stories; they remind the readers of their own stories.


    • Your students must have loved you, Marylin, with all the wisdom you found to share. And I’m sure your mother’s wonderful words and ideas found their way into your classroom.
