What peaks your curiosity? Causes you to look up from the road you have traveled so many days? What makes you stop long enough to ask a question? Or to wait for an answer? I am curious about the process of writing. I find myself wondering about words and phrases. I record snippets of text and quotes on pieces of paper, in my journal, on my phone. This road I have been traveling feels familiar and yet I believe there might be surprises waiting around the next curve.
A quote for today:
E. L. Doctorow once said that “writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.” You don’t have to see where you’re going, you don’t have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird
