It's not an owl after all...
It's not an owl after all...

'Making a novel is like carving something out of a block of marble, or wood.  At first there is a great cloud of wood chips and dust in the air as one is getting a rough form and shape (looks a bit like an owl).  Later, it is about quietly refining, like carving, or taking away a chip or two or five hundred, or gluing on a bit that got hacked off by mistake, or sanding, or polishing.  And it's not an owl after all, it's a winged horse.'                - Cefyn R. D.
