Saturday Writing Quote — Flannery O’Conner

“The meaning of a story has to be embodied in it, has to be made concrete in it. A story is a way to say something that can’t be said any other way, and it takes every word in the story to say what the meaning is.”

– Flannery O’Connor, American short story writer, novelist, and essayist (1925-1964)
