Sit. Listen

There are significant moments in everyone’s day that can make literature. That’s what you ought to write about. 

~ RAYMOND CARVER

For me, writing starts with a line, or some imagination, or some notion, and I just go with it as far as I can. And you know how this works, this idea that you sort of set yourself afloat on the language. And you think, I’ll see how far it can take me before this little raft I’ve cobbled together falls apart and everybody understands that I’m really just a fraud, or drowning—whichever comes first.
