I can write what I want, when I want, and it doesn't have to perfect the first time around. I have the luxury to alter, add to, or delete whatever I've written to make it the way I want it. I get to know my characters and travel on their journeys with them. There is no experience like that.(less)

L.M. Nelson liked a quote
On Writing by Stephen King
“I have spent a good many years since―too many, I think―being ashamed about what I write. I think I was forty before I realized that almost every writer of fiction or poetry who has ever published a line has been accused by someone of wasting his or her God-given talent. If you write (or paint or dance or sculpt or sing, I suppose), someone will try to make you feel lousy about it, that's all.”
Stephen King
