“I did not write stories to get people through the hard places and the difficult times. I did not write them to make readers of nonreaders. I wrote them because I was interested in the stories, because there was a maggot in my head, a small squirming idea I needed to pin to the paper and inspect, in order to find out what I thought and felt about it. I wrote them because I wanted to find out what happened next to people I had made up. I wrote them to feed my family.” –Neil Gaiman, 2010 Newbery Medal Acceptance Speech
Creative people say so much more with their words.
That is all.
