Destacado: RTISTIC CREATION is a voyage into the unknown. In our own eyes, we are off the map. The excitement of potential discovery is accompanied by anxiety, despair, caution, perhaps, perhaps boldness, and, always, the risk of failure. Failure

Destacado: and relatively few if any words are devoted to the nearly half of each day they spend sleeping and eating, dressing and undressing, trimming their nails, paying their bills. All of which is to say, even epic novels are silent about much in their characters’ lives. Short stories and poems are, correspondingly, surrounded by even more blank space

Destacado: more scenic route, or a more familiar route, to the fastest. Our sense of a place is in many ways more important than objective fact.

Destacado: choose our blanks, rather than simply omit parts of the fictional world that seem too large or complicated or bothersome to include. In realistic fiction, we need to be particularly wary of unintentional voids in our characters’ perceptions and thoughts. It is easier to write about a simpler world, one in which characters don’t think about, don’t imagine, everything we think about and imagine. The trouble is, unless we’re writing the book for a Broadway musical, such a world is distractingly, disappointingly artificia

Destacado: while some writers may appreciate lists and categories, catalogs of options and examples, others resist the prescriptive, inclined toward analogy rather than explication, exceptions rather than rules.

Destacado: The need for selection means that every story contains, and is surrounded by, blank spaces, some more significant than others. When we create a fictional world, our decisions include geography, or setting, but also where and when a narrative begins and ends, who it involves and who it doesn’t,

Destacado: In a surprising number of novels, the characters are effectively jobless; they have been granted psychic vacations from work by the author. Their occupations might be named, but they have no employers, no colleagues, no pressing work-related obligations; which is to say, they live in a world very different from that of most readers

Destacado: if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them…. [But] if a writer omits something because he does not know it then there is a hole in the story. —ERNEST HEMINGWAY
