Meaning According to John Gardner

While I'm away on a little vacation, I thought I would bust out some old journals this week that have never been posted, just for a sense of consistency and letting you know more about my story.  Let's see...in July 2010, I was working on a draft of Dirty Barbie and Other Girlhood Tales.  I needed to submit the script in early August to the Lee Street Theatre in NC, so I'm sure that had most of my attention.  My husband is a John Gardner enthusiast, so I think I found this quote in a book of his on novel writing.  This is a kind-of Wizard of Oz speech...that you have everything that you need and everything that means something to you is worth sacrificing something else for.  I hear that.
