“Identification is why the reader reads and why the writer writes. We all want to identify with a character, so that we can, in turn, identify with ourselves. Do you have yourself all figured out? Is your self-knowledge so complete? Do you know yourself so well that you'll never do anyting stupid or make a fool of yourself again? When it comes to knowing ourselves, we are incomplete, lacking, deficient. Each of us is our own ongoing problem until the day we die.”
Jerry Cleaver

“stories aren’t ideas. They’re not concepts or definitions. They’re experience.”

“Anytime you don’t have a picture in your head, you’re in trouble or will be soon.”
