Isn't discovery in writing fun? At least, today, it was for me.
And so I end this week on a high note, both in writing and in the special events of the past few days here in the family. And I also take a moment at the end of this work week to share a few thoughts on the subject of discovery in writing:
- "We don't write what we know. We write about what we wonder about." --Richard Peck
- "The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." --Marcel Proust
- "Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and you learn as you go." --E.L. Doctorow
- "I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear." --Joan Didion
- "Writing is a tool of transformation and can shine the light on the inside, dispelling darkness, taking us through external layers, bringing us closer to our souls." --Hillary Carlip
- "You always find things you didn't know you were going to say, and that is the adventure of writing." --John Updike
