figure emerging from stone


Writers are like sculptors, except we have to actually create the stone our book will be
carved from.

First drafts are that enormous, unwieldy, rough chunk of marble from which
our work will eventually emerge. It’s a mammoth task.

inside it somewhere, is something beautiful.


Yours, from the marble mine,
