Shirley Jackson, author of the short story The Lottery, is said to have been walking her baby in its carriage through the neighborhood when the story “The Lottery” came to her. She said it came to her all at once.
A moment of grace.
So far, that moment hasn’t ever happened for me.
And, I still teach for a day job. I read and edit quickly. Move on…
The process I use to write is probably very different than another author’s. We come about the words in different ways, but eventually, we are the same in needing to get those words down on paper.
The point of any process…getting it done.
