William Faulkner once said that writing was his meat and his drink, or something similar to that. Well, stories are my meat and my drink, whether I am writing them or reading them. I am fascinated by the power of stories, and try to convey their power through writing and speaking and teaching. Sometimes I think I convey it very well, sometimes not. And sometimes, someone else gets it just right.
