Quote of the Day—Ray Bradbury

This quote is one of my favorites, but its interpretations can be widely varied. To me, it means that I must exercise my writing often enough to avoid losing inspiration and ability. Others may relate to this quote because they use writing as an escape from a destructive or difficult reality. I think, depending on your circumstances and mindset, Bradbury's words can signify quite a few different things, all just as meaningful as the others.

So what is the significance of this quote to you? How can you apply it to your life as a writer?

Today's Prompt: Imagine the modern world without one essential aspect. It can be an object or occurrence, natural or manmade. Create a brief, written "snapshot" of life without this aspect.
