“Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go.”

More from E. L. Doctorow

“Planning to write is not writing. Outlining, researching, talking to people about what you're doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing.”
“The writer isn't made in a vacuum. Writers are witnesses. The reason we need writers is because we need witnesses to this terrifying century.”
“Writing is immensely difficult. The short forms especially.”
