    • Thank you. I couldn’t live without writing. It’s not all good. In fact, much of it is trash. But most days I am able to write one shining sentence or one golden haiku—after pages of work. As Ray Bradbury said (and I paraphrase), “It’s quantity, not quality, that counts.” He meant that by writing and writing and writing, the writer can usually come up with something good, rather than sitting around waiting for inspiration (which is rarely helpful).
