The Saturday Writing Quote

“My writing knows more than I do. What a writer must do is listen to her book. It might take you where you don’t expect to go. That’s what happens when you write stories. You listen and you say “aha,” and you write it down. A lot of it is not planned, not conscious, it happens while you are doing it. You know more about if after you’re done.”

Madeleine L’Engle

Another goddess. I reread A Wrinkle in Time last year and was as enchanted as when I was twelve — maybe even more.
