Books are there to tell a great story which usually means it's full of strife and conflict. And I don't do well with strife and conflict in my own life. :D As the saying goes, better the devil you know than the devil you don't know. I'll stick with my world, however flawed it may be. (less)

She never told me exactly what happened since, even 60+ years later, she couldn't talk about the experience. I think whatever happened would make for a gripping novel. (less)

Terry Bisson
“I thought you just told me they used radio.”

They do, but what do you think is on the radio? Meat sounds. You know how when you slap or flap meat, it makes a noise? They talk by flapping their meat at each other. They can even sing by squirting air through their meat.”
Terry Bisson

Albert Camus
“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”
Albert Camus

Stephen King
“Writing fiction, especially a long work of fiction can be difficult, lonely job; it’s like crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a bathtub. There’s plenty of opportunity for self-doubt.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Lewis Fry Richardson
“Big whirls have little whirls,
That feed on their velocity;
And little whirls have lesser whirls,
And so on to viscosity.”
