The Saturday Writing Quote – on the spark

01_Barn_Pastel_WEB“[If I’m not sure how to proceed], I always try to go back to the excitement I felt when I began the story—where did that come from? If I go back to the energy, I’ll be reminded about why this story needs to be told.”

— John Dufresne, American novelist and teacher, in The Writer, Oct 2012
