The Joy of Writing

Question: What are the rewarding moments in writing?

Answer/Quote: “My favorite thinking is when I’m playing with an idea, wrestling it down into sentences and I kind of lose myself in the rhythm of the keystrokes and the wonder of seeing my thoughts take shape on the screen. And then, a particularly clever bit of text, a question or an insight—something I didn’t even know I knew—stares right back at me expectantly. ‘Huh,’ I think to myself, now recalibrating my next move. ‘That’s good.’ ” P. 489.
