how you tell the story is the story
Went to a luncheon at the Biltmore La De Dah to hear Elizabeth Strout, author of Amy and Isabelle as well as two other fabulous books for adults. I was a fluttery fan and got to talk with her alone before the luncheon began. One of the things she said during our (students and my) discussion with her was, "How you tell the story IS the story", and it has stuck with me for a couple of days now. Would love to read your take on this.
