Born on this day in 1911, William Golding, author of Lord of the Flies, said this about the writing process:
The writer probably knows what he meant when he wrote a book, but he should immediately forget what he meant when he’s written it.
How do you interpret this quote from Golding? The ever-changing nature of the writing process? The ebb and flow of ideas? The power (and positivity) of allowing things to sit, ponderously, musingly, creatively?
