A gathering place for readers, writers, and other advocates for a more just world

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

I started to write my first novel, Pieces of You, to find answers but now that it’s finished, I lean toward the writing process as a way to live the questions. What do other authors believe? What have you learned from writing?
