Quote of the Day:

"Writing should always be exploratory. There shouldn't be theassumption that you know ahead of time what you want to express. When you enter into the dance with language, you'll begin to find that there's something before, or behind, or more absolute than the thing you thought you wanted to express. And as you work, other kinds of meaning emerge than what you might haveexpected. It's like wrestling with the angel: On the one hand you feel the constraints of what can be said, but on the other hand you feel the infinite potential."

                                -- Marilynne Robinson
