Once of the books I absolutely love is Howl's Moving Castle by Dianna Wynn Jones. I'm talking about THE BOOK, not the movie! I don't know why the movie is so different, but for me, it just doesn't have the same magic (haha). Howl makes me laugh, and I think the thought shared in the quote below is just spot on. Sometimes there are only certain things I do (like a really long run) when I start out without the pressure.
