Quote of the Week~September 14th, 2012 via IgniteYourCreativity.net

“Writing a first draft is like groping one’s way into a dark room, or overhearing a faint conversation, or telling a joke whose punchline you’ve forgotten. As someone said, one writes mainly to rewrite, for rewriting and revising are how one’s mind comes to inhabit the material fully.” ~ Ted Solotaroff
