Quote of the Day—Lucy Maud Montgomery

In yesterday's post, I said I would find a quote that inspired me. This is what I came up with. Lucy Maud Montgomery (through Anne Shirley) puts this desire perfectly into words. This is why I write or sing or do anything creative. Just reading this quote makes me want to sit down at my computer and "add some beauty to life." Color me inspired.

So (if you're creative) why do you pursue your art? 

Today's prompt: write a short fiction piece that takes place in a world in which laughter does not exist.

Post your story in the comments. Happy writing!
