Words on Writing: Vonnegut & Didion

Tips from pros:

Vonnegut: “Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.”

Didion: “I constantly retype my own sentences. Every day I go back to page one and just retype what I have. It gets me into a rhythm.”

Writing was so much easier in the old days. Your editor lived right in your typewriter!
