First of all, storytelling is fun. There's a certain euphoria you get when you successfully connect story elements together in a way that not only pleases you, but tickles your readers, too. Secondly, when you start writing seriously, you just, well, need to get the story out. It's like story inertia... you get excited about an idea, and it takes up so much of your thinking that it takes on a life of its own. You just have to finish it.(less)

Justin liked a quote
Created for Greater Things by Jeffrey R. Holland
“Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha" (2 Kings 6:16-17).

In the gospel of Jesus Christ you have help from both sides of the veil, and you must never forget that. When disappointment and discouragement strike--and they will--you remember and never forget that if our eyes could be opened we would see horses and chariots of fire as far as the eye can see riding at reckless speed to come to our protection. They will always be there, these armies of heaven, in defense of Abraham's seed.”
