Storytelling Wisdom

"Literature was not born the day a boy crying "wolf, wolf" came running out of the Neanderthal valley with a big gray wolf at his heels: Literature was born on the day a boy came crying "wolf, wolf," and there was no wolf behind him." --Vladimir Nabokov

There are no wolves where I am this weekend (at least I hope not)--but I thought I'd take a moment to share this tidbit of wisdom as we consider the stories we'll be working on this upcoming week. Have a good one! 


  1. Oh, I love that quote!

  2. Great thoughts to ponder. Happy week! :O)

  3. I just e-mailed you that you won the T-shirt at my site...

    Please send me your snail mail. Thanks!

  4. What a great quote! I'm so glad you shared. Definitely makes me think.
