Quotation of the Week

“I have come to learn that good writing has nothing to do with the first, third or fiftieth draft.
In fact, good writing has to do with not counting drafts, not keeping track of how many times you’ve revised something.
The only draft that counts is the final draft.”
--Raymond Obstfeld, Novelist’s Essential Guide to Crafting Scenes.
= Available at Sembach Library

Sonder is a German prefix meaning "special."
