Writing Words of Wisdom

I'm going to do these more often, because I'm in desperate need of the reminders and inspiration. But this one is how I've always viewed my stories.

“We often forget that novels have deep roots in storytelling, because books are objects, things you hold and read alone in your underwear. But I always try to connect the novel back to its roots: We’re sitting around a campfire, and now it’s someone’s turn to tell a story. I try to think of myself as a storyteller, rather than a ‘writer.’”
