      TLDR: Writing starts with a conscientious process of observation. The writer is on at all times, observing. Then he writes. It's like a shark you are either swimming eating or dead. You're observing writing or dead.

      "Obviously a writer has to actually write. But my job, even before writing, is to pay attention. Listening with all my senses is my first real job. When I remember nothing begins with me and purpose to stay small in the presence of others (not in a woe-is-me kind of way, but in a you-have-something-to-teach-me way), the writing not only comes more naturally, but is more full and textured."
