excerpting an excerpt to say an unrelated thing! whoohooo!

Cast Our Nets Like Rampage!!!:

"When I talk to the Japanese manga editors, and they talk about the process of creation, they talk about different story-telling themes as being important. You talk to an American English professor and they'll talk about conflict as what drives story. The Japanese editors talk about friendship driving the story, not being driven by conflict at all. "

I am absolutely in love with the idea of a literature not driven by conflict.

That is all.
