“In most good stories, it is the character’s personality that
creates the action of the story. In most of these [lesser]
stories, I feel that the writer has thought of some action and
then scrounged up a character to perform it. You will usually
be more successful if you start the other way around. If you
start with a real personality, a real character, then something
is bound to happen.”

-Flannery O’Connor
