Writing Wisdom: Anne Lamott

While I’m off in beautiful Spartanburg, SC, teaching in the Converse College Low-Residency MFA Program, I’m posting some of my favorite quotations about writing. I’m hoping I’ll be able to pop in from time to time with some updates—perhaps on the all-important food situation?—but I’m not sure how much time/energy I’ll have for dealing with the internet. I’ll be back to blogging around June 15ish.

This one scares me sometimes; I was always the one screaming, “Don’t go in there!” during the horror movies:

“If there is one door in the castle you have been told not to go through, you must. Otherwise you’ll just be rearranging furniture in rooms you’ve already been in.”
~~Anne Lamott
