For the next few entries I'll be posting some juicy quotes from Joyce Carol Oates' journal that I liked, ones that got me thinking about my own choices as a writer.
"'Keeing busy' is the remedy for all the ills in America. It's also the means by which the creative impulse is destroyed."
This speaks to me. I know when I have more writing and thinking time--when I don't allow myself to be pulled into so many different directions--I go deeper with my writing.
