-- Quote of the Day --

There is something about early morning. I’ll write my first draft on a tablet on a solid wooden desk with a cup of coffee. …With the sun slanting across the table – that is when I do my best work. It is what I love most to do, to write. …When you are researching and reading, and visiting a place to see what it is about that place that appeals to you… that is my favorite part – the gathering and listening and then stitching the pieces together… the story will often take on a life of itself. It really is amazing.”

~ March 4th – Cheryl Kerr

Today's quote originates from a Conscious Discussions radio show interview that aired on March 4th, 2010. Check out this archived interview: The World of Writing
