This will probably be my last day of quotes, so I have chosen 2 from one of the best writers I have ever had the pleasure of reading.

Thank you again to the incredible person and writer, Steve, for selecting me for this!

Amy Tan has always been one of my favorite writers.  She weaves magic with a precision of language, in a way that no other writer can. And, she also seems like a super  cool lady!!!!!

2 Quotes from Amy Tan

“I think we often write because we feel a loneliness, and people read for the same reason, and then they come away feeling a little less lonely.”

“Words to me were magic. You could say a word and it could conjure up all kinds of images or feelings or a chilly sensation or whatever. It was amazing to me that words had this power.”

In both of these quotes, Amy sums up the primary reasons why I write. The second quote is on the writing board above my desk.

I am putting the invitation out to Angela, Walt and Kim, who have very different voices, but all of them beautiful  powerful and inspiring!
