Quote from Page 4: “As far as my work was concerned he said ‘Go ahead, everything you do is great.’ He watched over my shoulder as I wrote stories, yelling, ‘Yes! That’s right! Wow! Man!’ and ‘Phew!’ and wiped his face with his handkerchief. ‘Man, wow, there’s so many things to do, so many things to write! How to even begin to get it all down and without modified restraints and all hung-up on the literary inhibitions and grammatical fears . . .’” (Submitted on March 12, 2017.)
