I’ve been studying this post from the Guardian, where authors propose dos and don’ts for writing fiction.
Among them, Annie Proulx, who says:
1 Proceed slowly and take care.
2 To ensure that you proceed slowly, write by hand.
3 Write slowly and by hand only about subjects that interest you.
Taking that into account, I very, very, very patiently await Annie Proulx’s next book, Bird Cloud: A Memoir which is slated for spring 2011.
