Sometimes it’s more about the character of the writer

Sometimes it is not the book a writer writes or the award and prizes the writer wins. Sometimes, it is simply the writer’s long and disciplined journey. Sometimes it is the humility and grace with which the writer responds to receiving an award and prizes. Sometimes it is the sheer inspiration that radiates from the writer’s words and her story.
