“Sometimes I think the fear of dying is really a fear that you're not living the life you want.”
Dashka Slater

“Narrative Tension is primarily about witholding information.”
Ian McEwan
tags: craft

“To delight a child, to add a new joy to the crowded miracles of childhood, is no less worth doing than to leave a Sistine Chapel to astound a somewhat bored procession of tourists; or to have written a classic that sells by the thousands and is possessed unread by all save an infinitesimal percentage of its owners. It is, then, not an ignoble thing to do one’s very best to give our coming rulers – children – a taste of the Kingdom of Art.”
Gleeson White

“Everything has to come to an end, sometime.”
L. Frank Baum, The Marvelous Land of Oz
