Dan DeLillo | On Why We Write

"As the novelist Dan DeLillo once said : Writing is a form of personal freedom. It frees us from the mass identity we see in the making all around us. In the end, writers will write not to be outlaw heroes of some underculture but mainly to save themselves, to survive as individuals."
Anna Quindlen, Write for Your Life. Newsweek, 2007. 


  1. Agreed. Writing feels so cleansing sometimes :)

  2. I have got to read more from Dan DeLillo...and Anna Quindlen. These are some really great words.
