To imagine yourself inside another person… is what a storywriter does in every piece of work; it is his first step, and his last too, I suppose.
Anne Lamott this upcoming Thursday. She’s one of my favorite writers, I’m so excited!

To all my librarian friends, champions of books, true magicians in the House of Life. Without you, this writer would be lost in the Dust.
To say that a writer’s hold on reality is tenuous is an understatement-it’s like saying the Titanic had a rough crossing. Writer’s build their own realities, move into them and occasionally send letters home. The only difference between a writer and a crazy person is that a writer gets paid for it.
Every writer is a frustrated actor who recites his lines in the hidden auditorium of his skull.
