Writing Quote #24

"Every writer must acknowledge and be able to handle the unalterable fact that he has, in effect, given himself a life sentence in solitary confinement. The ordinary world of work is closed to him -- and that if he's lucky!"

- Peter Straub

I love this quote! I have joked more than once that I would love to be in solitary - if I had books to read and to write! :)

God bless, Anne Marie :)
