Novelist Nicole Krauss writes compellingly about overcoming doubt
I’m listening to THE HISTORY OF LOVE by Nicole Krauss. I. LOVE. IT.
And so, I started wondering about the author’s process. I went to her website. There, under “Press,” she talks in part about just that, her writing process and her thought process about writing.
Under the heading: “On Doubt,” which is a five-graph essay about that subject, she begins:
“I begin my novels without ideas.“
Later she writes:
“It’s unnerving not to know what I’m writing, or why, or where it will go.“
I really enjoyed it. You might, too.
