But this mornings ICL Email brought this quote I can't get out of my head.
"As soon as you start telling stories, they slide away from the strictly factual, they don't worry about what's real so long as they can talk about what's true."
-- Chaz Brenchley
Click here for his amazing speech on writing fantasy. But you don't have to read or write fantasy to appreciate his advice. Lots of good stuff.
Here's another of Brenchley's quotes I'm pondering today:
"...good books, better books always lead you forward into unexplored territory, new ideas, new books. It wasn't the internet that invented the world wide web; that web already existed, on paper, in all the books on all the shelves in all the libraries of the world."
