"...like a long kiss"

"In the movies, writers are always balling up pieces of paper and staring moodily into the corner as though they were struggling to read a teleprompter. Sheesh. Writing is a completely internal activity. Watching someone write is pointless. Reading is where all the action is. You are moving your mind across someone else's, like a snail, like a long kiss."

--Audrey Niffenegger, Author
during an interview on her book "The Time Traveler's Wife"
