In response to our question,“There are thousands of reasons not to write. What is one reason that keeps you moving forward as a writer?” Fleegal provided this quote by Rane Arroyo:

I cannot imagine not being a poet,
being as anonymous as the wind.

This quote is from the poem “The House of Names,” published in Home Movies of Narcissus, University of Arizona Press, 2002.
