I love that quote! It's awesome how a writer can find conflict in even the simplest stories :)

I agree. :o) Sometimes it's the simplest stories that have the most resonance because they feel authentic and real. The world is full of everyday conflicts happening to everyday people.

Sorry...writers, not readers. Although, readers will also take it to heart...
