Saturday Creativity Quote

“Instead of writing what you know, find out what you know by writing. … All fiction is political, even if it’s not deliberately so. I don’t write about elections and their consequences, but my characters make choices in their lives, and every choice is a kind of political act.”

– novelist and short story writer Hilma Wolitzer, in an August 2021 Washington Post interview with her daughter, novelist Meg Wolitzer, on publishing at 91 a short story collection with a new story written after the death of her husband from Covid and her own hospitalization
