“Why does one begin to write? Because she feels misunderstood, I guess. Because it never comes out clearly enough when she tries to speak. Because she wants to rephrase the world, to take it in and give it back again differently, so that everything is used and nothing is lost. Because it's something to do to pass the time until she is old enough to experience the things she writes about.”
Nicole Krauss, The History of Love
I'm currently working on a short story for class on Wednesday. I'm still at the
beginning, still trying to coax the pieces together in my brains so I can then articulate them
into some sort ofwritten form. It's hard, y'all. But that's all just part of the process, right?
