Thank God It’s Monday! Getting us off on the right foot, here’s a quote from Lawrence Block, from his introduction to his updated and expanded Writing the Novel from Plot to Print to Pixel:

“Well, here’s the thing–when all is said and done, the novelist’s task is pretty much the same as it always has been. The important element of writing has always consisted of taking the right words and putting them in the right order, and that’s every bit as true whether you’re cutting them into clay tablets with a stylus or talking them onto a screen with the aid of voice-recognition software. You have to tell your story, and everything follows from what you write and how you write it.”
