Writers on Writing

Question: How do real writers write?

Answer/Quote: “The most effective way for me to work was to identify the ‘getaway quote’—the comment that sums up the story—from my interviews and notes, set that on my computer screen as the conclusion, and to write my way there, …. I knew where my story was headed, and I charged confidently toward my destination.” P. 15.

Comment: Similar to writing the final sentence and then starting at the beginning. RayS.

Title: “Writing Without a Map.” Jessica Handler. The Writer (May 2011), pp. 15-16.
