Why Write?

The story is not in the plot but in the telling. 

Ursula K. LeGuin

We read five words on the first page of a really good novel and we begin to forget that we are reading printed words on a page; we begin to see images.
John Gardner

Stories are living and dynamic. Stories exist to be exchanged. They are the currency of Human Growth.
Jean Houston

I want story, wit, music, wryness, color, and a sense of reality in what I read, and I try to get it in what I write. 
John D. MacDonald

If you wait for inspiration, you're not a writer, but a waiter.
