“Writing…is ninety percent listening. You listen so deeply to the space around you that it fills you, and when you write, it pours out of you. If you can capture that reality around you, your writing needs nothing else…Listen with your whole body, not only with your ears, but with your hands, your face, and the back of your neck.”

–Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg, p.53
