“We’re at the heart of the issue. The difference between fiction writers and civilians is that we make it our life’s work to put our daydreams and day-nightmares on paper. Most of the time, we don’t understand the secrets and demons that our spontaneous imaginations contain. All we feel is that there’s something in us demanding to be released in the form of a story.”

  1. You know, most of the time, I have no problem with quotes like the one you posted. I can’t help but feel this time, though, that there are some writers that really didn’t have to feel compelled to share their day dreams with me:)

    You are not included in that group, by the way.
