Yeah, we got one, too.
Answer Me This
Do you like a good question?
There is a part of the writing process where asking the right questions is the best thing you can hope for…and also, all you need.
The whole point of asking a question is you don’t know the answer. And if you want a real answer, it can’t be something you already know — therefore, you have to wait. And sit with the question, and not whine, and not short-circuit the period of not knowing by a desire to be comfortable/rush through discomfort by getting easier answers that are not yet full ones.
People who like certainties won’t like questions. People — like writers — who enjoy discovering new things…just might.
