Quotes for the Day

--E.L. Doctorow


"There is no perfect time to write. There is only now."

--Barbara Kingsolver

Carefully considering what type of house you want, drawing up plans, architecting a house, planning a schedule with the contractor, none of this is building. Putting hammer and nails to wood is building. But I wouldn't want to live in the house whose builder skipped those initial steps. Thank goodness we don't have to live in the stories we write, only with them.
