Monday Quote of the Day: Writing, Process

The next AWP Conference will be in Boston.  Wow, self wishes she’d been paying more attention to previous announcements.  It would have been a serious temptation.

I’m not very good at communicating verbally.  I’m somebody who listens more than talks.  I like to listen and absorb.  But when I need to connect with people and need to reach out, I write.

—  Ruth Forman, in an interview in the AWP Writer’s Chronicle, Oct./Nov. 2012

In other news, self was incredibly sad to learn (from Isagani Cruz on FB) that Marilou Diaz-Abaya, one of the Philippines’ first women movie directors, passed away today (Monday, Oct. 8), after a long bout with cancer.  She, like Dear Departed Doreen Fernandez, were two of self’s first inspirations.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
