I am completely in love with my current novel. I’m going to try and enjoy this feeling while it lasts, because I know that pretty soon, I’m going to be frustrated, tired, and angry with my novel.
And now, because it’s late and I can’t think of anything coherent to write, a quote:
I don’t know anything but the simplest rules of English grammar, and I seldom consciously apply them. Nevertheless, I instinctively write correctly and, I like to think, in an interesting fashion. I know when something sounds right and when it doesn’t, and I can tell the difference without hesitation, even when writing at breakneck speed. How do I do this? I haven’t the faintest idea.
This quote applies to me, in case you’re wondering. Honest. Show me a text riddled with mistakes, I’ll correct it for you — no problem at all. But ask me why those mistakes were mistakes… I won’t be able to answer you.
