|Author Owen Wister|
|Depiction of Prussian Militarism indoctrinating the young.|
As I writer, I have to have faith that the concept will reveal itself to me as I get deeper into the material. It's kind of like the story of a sculptor of stone who says she stares at the uncarved block of stone until she "sees" the image within, then simply starts cutting away the stone to reveal the statue trapped inside.
I know that deep within all my material is this GREAT book. I just have to "see" what it is among all the material. Once I have that vision, then the actual writing will just fly by because the hardest part will be done.
So, on to my next deadline!
