Inspired Quote: Writerly Chaos

"When people see the nice books with the nice white pages and the nice black writing, what they don't see is the chaos and the complete frenzy and general shambles that the work comes out of."
~ Margaret Atwood

And we really don't want the readers to see the frenzy and the shambles either.

True. At the same time, it's nice for writers (who often work in such a vacuum) to know that they're not alone their chaotic, frenzied shambles!
