This is undoubtedly one of my favorite C. S. Lewis quotes, because it so greatly applies to me and my writing.  Nearly every time I sit down and think about Guardian, I can pick out what stories have influenced it.

It usually goes something to the effect of this:

Me: *sits down to think, playing out the storyline in my head*

Me:  Well, that smacks heavily of Heartless…  Pfft, forget Heartless, that sounds like I dug it straight out of the Tales of Goldstone Wood

Me: Oh, and that character right there…  He sounds like he waltzed out of the Thirteenth Tribe

Me: *squints at a particular race of people* And you lot are a really whacked-out combination of the Hunger Games and Starflower…

Me:  And then that character is super cliche…  As is that one…  And maybe that one, too…

Me: That guy is strangely reminiscent of Victor Frankenstein…

Me: *growls*  And significant portions of my plotline look like Boneman’s Daughter…  I can’t believe I let that happen.

Me: *remembers the above C. S. Lewis quote*  Eh.  Who cares?  I love this story!  *goes back to working on it*

I think that that pretty much sums up why I love that quote.
