Quote of the Day

“Treating a novel like a hands-on writing classroom – where advancement relies as much on dramatic failures as it does on heroic successes – has been an amazingly liberating experience for me. And it’s taught me exactly what aspects of noveling I’m good at (coffee drinking and complaining) and what my weaknesses are (dialogue, character development, plot, etc.).”

– From Chris Baty’s book, No Plot? No Problem!
