Writing Quote Friday #1

I'm going to start a new post on Fridays. Let's just call it "Writing Quote Fridays" for lack of a better name. One of the reasons is because I love reading what other authors say about writing--even if I don't agree with it, or if it doesn't work for me, I like to know what works for others.

Without further ado, I'll start with one of my absolute favorites:

"Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia."  ~E.L. Doctorow
