I’ve just come from a stimulating writers’ group meeting (of three). Annie Dillard’s book, The Writing Life, came up.


Now, home, I’m checking my email (but of course), and indulging in reading BrainPicking’s newsletter. It’s often a feast, but especially so this issue, especially the essay on Dillard’s book.

Quakers have a saying about something that “speaks to your condition.” I’m approaching the final chapter of the WIP, and this book speaks to mine.

(Don’t you love that Dillard’s first name is Annie?)
