"The Skill of Writing"

"The skill of writing is to create a context in which other people can think."
~Edwin Schlossberg

Well, I'm pretty certain my NaNoWriMo projects don't create much context for thought besides the thought of "what possessed her to compose such drivel?" but I do like this quote a lot.  What writers would you say have created a context for you to think in?

    Margaret Atwood for me.

    I think the skill of writing is more than that though - it's drawing people in to the point where they forget where they are, and who they are in reality.
