“Writers slip out of their own
skins into someone else’s.
They live many lives.
That’s my plan,
to know many people and
have adventures in exotic places
so I have something to write about,
experiences far from my stifling
life in southeast Texas where nothing
but bad weather ever happens.”
spoken by Diana Greene, Dede’s protagonist from Broken Wings
