Here are the Best Storytelling Quotes :
- When you are in the middle of a story, it isn’t a story at all, but only a confusion; a dark roaring, blindness, a wreckage of shattered glass and splintered wood; like a house in a Whirlwind, or else a boat crushed by the icebergs or swept over the rapids, and all aboard powerless to stop it. It’s only afterward that it becomes anything like a story at all. When you are telling it, to yourself or to someone else.
- AS a writer, I need an enormous amount of time alone. Writing is 90 percent procrastination: reading magazines, eating cereal out of the box, watching infomercials.

- The only way you can write the truth is to assume that what you set down will never be read. Not by any other person, and not even by yourself at some later date.
