2020 has reminded me of the joyful, challenging, blessed work of creative writing. I can’t help but think of how Annie Dillard described it: "At its best, the sensation of writing is that of any unmerited grace. It is handed to you, but only if you look for it. You search, you break your heart, your back, your brain, and then – and only then – it is handed to you. From the corner of your eye you see motion. Something is moving through the air and headed your way." Mmm.
