Writing Quote of the Week

This is what a writer does. You take your precious babies, your life’s dreams, the very best work you can do and you gather it in your hands and hold it out to be admired—and when it’s then slapped out of your hands to the ground and you’re instructed cheerfully to buck up, it just needs a little cleaning…you buck up and get out the scrub brush. Because that’s what being a writer is all about. -Laurie R. King
