Quote #57 – E. L. Doctorow

“Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.

  1. What happens when your headlights fail to work ?
    I like the quote,it makes sense.
    By the way, Nicole my daughter in law, gave me an early Christmas present,last evening. Cold Days,by Jim Butcher. A hard cover. Sylvia knew it and told her that I could not wait until Christmas. I started to read it.
    I’ve been thinking of dropping off your books at Nicki, Since I can’t get any one to drive me to your home. Now all I have to do is find some one to drive me to Leesburg. I miss my ability to drive…


    • Nicki and I are coming to see you soon, Felix. No, really. HONEST! We were trying to find a date we could both go before Christmas, but we don’t have any weekends where we are both free. But she wants to visit as much as I do, so be patient just a WEE little bit more, and we will be coming very soon. HONEST. I swear it on a stack of Harry Dresden books!!!

      You are going to love Cold Days. I’m just in agony now until the next one comes out. It’s 5 stars, for sure.

      Glad you like the quote. That’s how I’m writing my book. One mile at a time. Or one headlight length. Or one step into the darkness. But bit by bit, I’ll get there.
