Why do I have to keep proving myself all of the time? Why can't I be like L'il, with everyone praising and encouraging me? Or Rainbow, with her sense of entitlement. I bet Viktor Greene never asked Rainbow why she wanted to be a writer.Or what if-I wince-Viktor Greene is right? I'm not a writer after all."

There were times, thought Mother, when the spirit of the thing was so much more important than the flesh in which it was clothed."
