“A literary contest is like a full moon. It casts a striking and comforting glow across the bleak sky, and turns a small number of people into werewolves.”

“Most men and women have stories to tell.

Life be pourin’ out ‘em, like trains skippin’ off rails.

Movies tell stories I wish I could live.”
