Creativity Quote

“Beauty and the Beast has been my favorite fairy-tale since I was about six; I still have the book I first read it in. When I wrote Beauty, I sat down, as I thought, to write a short story, and found I had more to say than I expected. I’d been going to that place in my head where my favorite fairy-tale lived for nearly twenty years; a lot had happened there in that time. But I found, to my dismay, that writing the story exorcised it. I couldn’t go there any more. And for the first several years after the book was published, when readers told me it had become a place in their heads where they liked to spend time, I was jealous. Because it was no longer available to me.”-Robin Mckinley
