“People say, ‘What advice do you have for people who want to be writers?’ I say, they don’t really need advice, they know they want to be writers, and they’re gonna do it. Those people who know that they really want to do this and are cut out for it, they know it.” — R.L. Stine

That’s why we’re all here, isn’t it? Through all the ups and downs of this crazy writing life, we couldn’t imagine it any other way. No matter how the “industry” changes, we’re always going to be storytellers. And there always have been, and always will be, storytellers.

Or, as Ursula K. Le Guin phrased it:

“There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories.”

So go forth, spinners of yarns and weavers of story tapestries. Weave and spin! Just be sure to drop your link in the comments below or on our Facebook page and tell us how you did with your goals this week. And, of course, be sure to visit other ROWers as well.

Happy writing!
