Quotes illustration
“The only rule I have when writing is to try to tell the truth. That doesn't mean you can't exaggerate, edit, rewrite things to make them more dramatic. But emotional truth is what I look for in writing.”

More from Erica Jong

“Despite all the cynical things writers have said about writing for money, the truth is we write for love. That is why it is so easy to exploit us.”
“I went for years not finishing anything. Because, of course, when you finish something you can be judged.”
