A Writer’s Job

A writer’s job is many things. It’s to tell stories. To document. To provoke. And like art, a writer’s job is never done; it’s only abandoned.

This morning I came across the quote below and it really seemed to resonate with me. In fact, I could still feel it tugging at me by the end of the day. Worthy of a yellow post-it note on my desk. And now a blog post to you fellow friends and restless writers:

“A writer’s job is to imagine everything so personally that the fiction is as vivid as memories.”    ~ John Irving

That’s good stuff, Mr. John.
