Brian Railsback + Quote for the day!

Here's novelist Brian Railsback, who will be stopping by to talk about publishing and other matters... There's more about him elsewhere in the blog. Quote for the day: "I have been told, both in approval and in accusation, that I seem to love all my characters. What I do in writing of any character is to try to enter into the mind, heart, and skin of a human being who is not myself. Whether this happens to be a man or a woman, old or young, with skin black or white, the primary challenge lies in making the jump itself. It is the act of a writer’s imagination that I set most high." --from Eudora Welty, The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty
