Quotation – March 13, 2014

Sit and quiet yourself.  Luxuriate in a certain memory and the details will come.  Let the images flow.  You’ll be amazed at what will come out on paper.  I’m still learning what it is about the past that I want to write.  I don’t worry about it.  It will emerge.  It will insist on being told.

    Agreed. It’s almost like the characters take over and start writing the novel for you.
