This in today from George Saunders, in the Guardian. What writers really do when they write. Check it out. I think my favorite like is this thought early on in the article: We often discuss art this way: the artist had something he “wanted to express”, and then he just, you know … expressed it. We buy into some version of the intentional fallacy: the notion that art is about having a clear-cut intention and then confidently executing same.
As a writer, hard on the task of creation, I appreciate Saunders and his candid insights. Enjoy!
And many thanks to Sara, from Studio III, for the share.
