I found this quote on Pinterest (where else?) It didn’t link me to the site it came from, only the little writing at the bottom suggests it’s from “10 Things Every Writer needs To Know by Jeff Anderson” I googled, and found that this is actually a book. Alas, still no one to credit for the pin.
However, I am crediting the quote, as it states quite clearly, to John Updike. Writer of one of my favourites “The Witches of Eastwick” (Yes, the book of the film, with Cher!) What I didn’t know, is that he wrote a follow up to that novel “The Widows of Eastwick” which was actually his last novel in 2008, he died the following year.
I love the idea of writing as being inside out reading. It’s genius in its simplicity.
Have a happy Wednesday 🙂
