Writing and Buddhism
A quote from George Saunders, speaking at Ohio University this month:
"I felt like I was a Buddhist before I knew it, because writing . . . well, what else is it? You put something down on Thursday, and if you get attached to the idea of how good it was on Thursday, then on Friday you're screwed. But if you let it be a new story, then you can see what it needs and go on and on."
