"This mysterious thing we call Inspiration isn’t that easy to pinpoint. But it’s the strange and wonderful thing about writing... – you can never predict where or when or even why something moves you to write... That’s what I mean when I said... (writing) comes in many guises. A (story) may be inspired by something that happened 20 years ago but until I’ve written it, I may not have realized that at the time I was greatly moved. I think you have to trust that the eye and mind are constantly recording, and be patient enough for them to reveal what they have observed." ~ from Conversations with Elizabeth Bishop
