Another Reason to Love Orson Scott Card

From his latest column:

Let's face it. You don't start writing fiction if you didn't have a healthy dose of vanity and ambition. What could be more arrogant than to believe that stuff you make up out of your head will be so pleasurable to others that they ought to pay you to be able to read it?

And then we have contests to see whose made-up stuff is best.
Yup, I love this man. Too bad he's already married.

That is a humorous quote. OSC always brings a breath of fresh air.
