Quote from Jodi Picoult

I read a quote from novelist Jodi Picoult today that I find to be true (at least it is for me):

'Writing is not about being inspired, waiting for the muse to strike. You can always edit something bad. You can't edit something blank. I'm always writing, even when I'm not at my desk. I write on my hands. I used to write on my kids' hands, too, but they don't let me any more. When I'm driving I sometimes write all the way up my arms.'
