Kate on Writing

Kate DiCamillo on Writing

My favorite quote about writing comes from Dorothy Parker:

"I hate writing. I love having written."

Every morning I wake up and think, "the last thing I want to do today is write."

And then I turn on the computer and write.

I write two pages a day. Usually, those two pages stink pretty bad.

I rewrite.

And rewrite.

And rewrite.

And rewrite.

And rewrite.

And each time I rewrite, the pages get a little better.
