FF – I heart this Neil Gaiman quote

As NaNoWriMo winds to a close (I have just under five thousand words to go), I thought this quote would be appropriate for this Fandom Friday. I’ve paired these words of wisdom from Neil Gaiman with a picture I took last winter of a Tufted Titmouse (and yes, I’m five years old, and I giggle every time I type, “Titmouse”). I haven’t purchased Fragile Things yet, but a little bird told me it might be under the Christmas tree next month. *grin*

“Stories, like people and butterflies and songbirds’ eggs
and human hearts and dreams, are also fragile things, made
up of nothing stronger or more lasting than twenty-six letters
and a handful of punctuation marks. Or they are words on the air,
composed of sounds and ideas-abstract, invisible, gone once
they’ve been spoken-and what could be more frail than that? But
some stories, small, simple ones about setting out on adventures
or people doing wonders, tales of miracles and monsters, have
outlasted all the people who told them, and some of them have
outlasted the lands in which they were created.”
~ Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders
