Quotes illustration
“Writing can be a pretty desperate endeavor, because it is about some of our deepest needs: our need to be visible, to be heard, our need to make sense of our lives, to wake up and grow and belong.”

More from Anne Lamott

“The real payoff is the writing itself, that a day when you have gotten your work done is a good day, that total dedication is the point.”
“Plot springs from character... I've always sort of believed that these people inside me- these characters- know who they are and what they're about and what happens, and they need me to help get it down on paper because they don't type.”
“I don't think you have time to waste not writing because you are afraid you won't be good at it.”
