This quote from E.L. Doctorow has mantra’d me through many a novel:
“It’s like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”
Are any of you out there also long-form writers? Have you ever sat down in front of that blank screen and wondered how the hell you’ll ever come up with 100 words, let alone 50,000?
If so, and if you’re anywhere near Westport this Sunday at 2 p.m. (November 1), please come hear my National Novel Writing Month kick-off talk at the Westport Public Library. Free and open to everyone – I’d love to see you there!
