Writing is a way of talking without being interrupted. ~Jules Renard, Journal, 10 April 1895
Found this quote today and absolutely love it! Yes, this explains it all. Why I love writing so much.
I'm sitting here this morning talking with my mother. She sits in her urn on the mantle of the fireplace. I will admit the conversation is a bit one-sided, but not completely.
As I write the words down I can hear her voice in my head, "I can't believe you would talk about something like that."
Oh Mother, that's what writers do!
