a dreamer's wisdom - e.m. forster

on writing - amy hempel

It's all about the sentences.  It's about the way the sentences move in

language.  It's about instants of consciousness.  It's about besieged
consciousness.  It's about love trouble.  It's about death.  It's about
suicide.  It's about the body.  It's about skepticism.  It's against

Be inspired.  Onward, writers, storytellers, and dreamers.
