Fresh and Startling and Intriguing

02/15/2014 Writing Quote


        I liked this quote. From the introduction to “Ender's Game” By Orson Scott Card:

“I felt a strong desire to write stories that would do for others what Asimov’s story had done for me. In other genres, that desire is usually expressed by producing thinly veiled rewrites of the great work: Tolkien’s disciples far too often simply rewrite Tolkien, for example. In Science Fiction, however, the whole point is that the ideas are fresh and startling and intriguing: you imitate the great ones, not by rewriting their stories, but rather by creating stories that are just as startling and new.”

I have a knack for absorbing information, breaking it down to its root elements, and teaching it to others.

Most importantly, I help purpose-driven people to understand their place in His-Story and provide them the tools they need to fulfill their unique position of opportunity and influence in this world (their Topos).
