But the thing that I really want to quote her on here on my blog. The question was pretty damned inane - it boiled down to the usual "What advice would you give to aspiring writers?"
The work is in the work itself. If [your daughter] writes a lot, that's good. If she revises a lot, that's even better. She should not only write about what she knows but about what she doesn't know. It extends the imagination.
It's like I've always said - fantasy isn't a sub-section of "literature" - the converse is true, ALL fiction is fantasy of one sort of another byt the simple virtue of not being true.
Huzzah for imagination. That's where fantasy lives.
Welcome to my world.
