In the writing process, the more the story cooks, the better. The brain works for you even when you are at rest. I find dreams particularly useful…You can only learn to be a better writer by actually writing.” ~Doris Lessing
In our pursuit of writing the perfect prose, novel, short story, let us bless ourselves with the gift of time-time enough for our ideas and visions to proof and rise to their fullest potential.

Let’s treat the words we weave together with the same honor and respect, especially since we intend to feed them to someone else.
