Quote for Thought

“A story is the beginning. It is half of the achievement. But it is not complete until you, as the writer, become part of it. As a writer, you have experienced this event on your own skin, and it is your experience, this feeling along the surface of your skin, that gives your story its coherence: it is what is at the centre of the forest of things." -- Ryszard Kapuscinski

Thanks for pointing out the Kapuscinski quote. It would be REALLY fun to take one of his stories apart and see what makes it tick.
