Quote of the Day: Monday, September 12, 2005


"Writing has always - and always will, I'm sure - scared the hell out of me. I'll do just about anything to get out of it, and have been known to spend whole afternoons circling my desk like a dog, wary, unwilling to commit to writing a single word. What is so frightening about it? I still don't know. Perhaps it's the horrible knowledge that no matter how well you write, the resultant product will never correlate exactly to the truth, will never arrive with quite the melodious voice you hear in the acoustic cavity of your mind." - Brenda Miller, from her Essay, "A Braided Heart: Shaping the Lyric Essay"
