The Humility of an Author – Rare Stuff Indeed

Orson Scott Card on inspiration:

A claim of inspiration is a claim of authority, and, as a writer, I have none.

That is why I never claim that anything I wrote was inspired by God, not even things I wrote by assignment from the church. I accept the blame for my mistakes, and assume that if you feel inspired, that is the Spirit acting upon you as you read, not upon me as I wrote.
