“Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”

More from E. L. Doctorow

“Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader – not the fact that is is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.”
“Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go.”
“Planning to write is not writing. Outlining, researching, talking to people about what you're doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing.”
