Digging In Before You Dig In

I’m connecting today to a post by Elizabeth Graver, whom I had the opportunity to study with at Boston College.


I’m launching into a new project that feels like it’s going to take five years to write just a first draft. For more immediate gratification, I’ve been working on a short story, a nonfiction article, and a picture book. None of this is getting the novel written, of course, at least not directly. Graver explores her pre-writing process with grace and confidence that makes me want to reprioritize.
