Quote of the Week: Anne Lamott

headlights at nightFor those of you participating in NaNoWriMo this month, you could probably use a bit of inspiration right about now. Well, here is a quote below on novel writing, with a slight edit for clarity.

“E.L. Doctorow said once that ‘Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.’ You don’t have to see where you’re going, you don’t have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you.” ~ Anne Lamott
