Joan Didion

It's been so long since I wrote here that really I ought to be coming back with more to say.

Instead though, I am just coming to deposit this little gem from Joan Didion:

"Novels are like paintings, specifically watercolors. Every stroke you put down you have to go with. Of course you can rewrite, but the original strokes are still there in the texture of the thing."

From another wonderful Paris Review interview. Love those interviews!

I'm two more work days away from having several months off to write. I absolutely cannot wait!
