Fight our way out...

“When we read, we stat at the beginning and continue until we reach the end. When we write, we start in the middle and fight our way out.”

--Vickie Karp

You'd think real life would be like reading a novel, but it's not. Life is like Vickie described writing: We find ourselves in situations that we should've seen coming ... but didn't. Then we have to get creative to find the best solution. The difference between writing and life is when writing a novel we don't have to suffer the consequences of our hero's actions.
