Where dips the rocky highland Of Sleuth Wood in the lake, here lies a leafy island Where flapping herons wake The drowsy water rats; There we've hid our faery vats, Full of berrys; And of reddest stolen cherries. Come away, O human child! To the waters and the wild With a faery, hand in hand, For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand. - William Butler Yeats, from "The Stolen Child"
for my girls, Sara and Sonia, who make my life beautiful
An Annie Dillard-style writing book that follows the writer's life as much as her philosophy about creativity and writing. Aspiring and accomplished writers will find a place to breathe, in both the memoir-stories and tips that seamlessly address major aspects of creative life—from inspiration to individual voice; from helpful habits, networking and publishing, to reasons we create and write. Says the first chapter, "There are so many things standing in my way this morning, I can hardly begin. Yet I've heard there are rumors of water. Maybe that is enough." And apparently it is. ••• named a Best Book of 2011, Englewood Review of Books and Hearts & Minds Books
