Softness is not weakness. It takes courage to stay delicate in a world this cruel.

Our time is precious; who wants to spend it cycling mountains of laundry from washer to dryer, replacing dead batteries, and shuttling stuff, from room to room? Every single thing you own is something you have to take care of. --Erica Layne

When I'm looking at the world through the eyes of the novel, everything incoming can be translated into the novel. You open yourself up to the world.
