Quote of the Day (William Faulkner, on How He Would Start a Novel)

“It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I do is to trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does.”―American novelist and Nobel Literature laureate William Faulkner (1897-1962), transcript of appearance at West Point, April 19, 1962, in Conversations with William Faulkner, edited by M. Thomas Inge (1999)
