Personal Quotes (3)

Writing comes after a fairly rigorous process of outlining and structuring, which allows me to go into free-fall when I start because I know I have somewhere to land. I'm so fortunate: I get to read and write stories and play-act and I don't even have to change out of my pajamas!
