                  Writing Quote

“We write every day, we fight every day,

we think and scheme and dream a little

dream every day. Manuscripts pile up

in the kitchen sink. Run-on sentences

dangle around our necks. We plant

purple prose in our gardens and snip

the adverbs only to thread them in our

hair. We write with no guarantees, no

certainties, no promises of what might

come and we do it anyway.

This is who we are.”

– Tarhereh Mafi
