    “We write to expose the unexposed. Most human beings are dedicated to keeping that one door shut. The writer's job is to see what's behind it, to see the bleak unspeakable stuff, and to turn the unspeakable into words - not just any words but if we can, into rhythm and blues. You can't do this without discovering your own true voice, and you can't find your true voice and peer behind the door and report honestly and clearly to us if your parents are reading over your shoulder.” ― Anne Lamott

Among the pearls she offers is to start small, as their father once advised her 10-year-old brother, who was agonizing over a book report on birds: "Just take it bird by bird." Lamott's suggestion on the craft of fiction is down-to-earth: worry about the characters, not the plot.
