We Heartily Second the Notion

'We do not write what we know; we write what we want to find out.'
--the late writer Wallace Stegner. We thank the Hawaii-based writer Bruce Schauble for finding that quote. While we've never been so fortunate as to have met him, it has come to our attention that his blog, a lovely reflection on teaching, reading and writing (he calls writing "the most powerful self-instructional tool that we have") nicely bears a link to our own. You can review an earlier mention of Stegner here.

Is that your shopping list, Teej, or characters in your novel in progress?

Okay, I kind of figured. Please, torture me by telling me about the weather where you're at. In Ohio, we're due to get hit with another snow storm shortly.
