Quote for today


"Being swept away by a combination of great story and great writing -- being flattened, in fact -- is part of every writer's necessary formation. You cannot hope to sweep someone else away by the force of your writing until it has been done to you." -- Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, p. 141

A very good book -- probably the only King book I ever read that didn't give me nightmares!
