Novels are forged in passion

Written By: Jessica Morrell - Dec• 17•18

Novels are forged in passion, demand fidelity and commitment, often drive you to boredom or rage, sleep with you at night. They are the long haul. They are marriage. Stories, on the other hand, you can lose yourself in for a few weeks then wrap up, or grow tired of and abandon (maybe) return to later. They can cuddle you sweetly, or make you get on knees and beg. ~David Leavitt
