WRITERS ON WRITING #63: Robert Cormier

When I'm writing, I'm only conscious that I'm a storyteller first.  I'm interested in creating real people, dramatic situations that will keep the reader turning pages.  Then, if I can say here's the chance for me to explore ideas, that's great.  I don't think of myself as a thematic writer, but as a storyteller.  If they don't work as stories, then no one will read them, so the message would get lost anyway.
