Neil Gaiman Explains Why He Writes

“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.
