Quote:Writing to experience the world

Had my credentials been in order I would never have become a writer. Had I been blessed with even limited access to my own mind there would have been no reason to write. I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means.
(Joan Didion, “Why I Write,” The New York Times Magazine, December 5, 1976.
I absolutely LOVE this quote. Love it, love it, love it. Did I mention that I love it?? :)
It comes courtesy of a great blog I recently discovered, Quotes About Creative Women. It is updated once a week and in the few weeks I’ve been following it, I’ve read wonderful inspirational thoughts from some very real, very smart women. I highly recommend this blog.
