I was scanning over someone's blog, someone I don't regularly read and at the moment, can't recall how to get back to her, she asked her readers to find a favorite quote on writing. It could be their own or someone else's. Now I have said a lot of great things on writing-- too bad I can't at the moment recall any-- but her saying that made me go looking for something someone else said that I particularly liked because I can so relate to it.
"In many cases when a reader puts a story aside because it 'got boring,' the boredom arose because the writer grew enchanted with his powers of description and lost sight of his priority, which is to keep the ball rolling.”
Stephen King in On Writing
