Check out Colleen Chesebro’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday this week at Silver Threading!
I wanted to follow Colleen’s choice of a quote on darkness by Dean Koontz and found a great one by our beloved Sir Terry Pratchett. Sir Terry was loved by millions and the dying of his light leaves a very dark hole.

Without such conflict, there is really no story. As writers, we send the darkness ahead and the reader hopes the hero wins.
But WE write the end of the story…
