...so my writer friend is complaining that he can't decide what to write about next. I try to be sympathetic, but I've never personally had the luxury of being able to choose a story. I can't set to work until the story chooses me. Until that happens, there's not much I can do but listen and pay attention - to everything.

Henry's books.


  1. Your writing experience has helped me a great deal. In the notes to the novel that apparently has chosen me, I've quoted words of your that are similar to the words above: "Whatever you do, don't try to tell the story before she gives you permission, yields her secrets and deep desires, makes herself yours to tell." Thanks Henry.
