A HIGHER CALLING
I have a new favorite writing quote. I found it in the latest issue of Writer's Digest magazine, thanks to my sister who has given me a gift subscription for oh, about ten years now. Every writer needs a sister like that.
The quote is near the end of an article about creating characters, which is my current challenge as I work to better develop the relationships in ESCAPE FROM FIRE MOUNTAIN (with the help of Amazing Agent).
Okay, I can't put it off any longer.
"Your highest calling is not to sell books or get famous, but to awaken mercy within your readers."

Mercy, people! I love it!!!
