Elizabeth Berg

A student told me I had to read Elizabeth Berg, so I am. This quote is from her book on writing, Escaping into the Open:

"The more you write, the more there is to draw from, the more you say, the more there is to say. The deeper you go in your imagination, the richer that reservoir becomes. You do not run out of material by using all that's in you; rather, when you take everything that is available one day, it only makes room for new things to appear the next." (103)

The deeper you go in your imagination, the deeper you are in your imagination.


  1. I love Elizabeth Berg as well and recently read HOME SAFE and WE ARE ALL WELCOME HERE - they are short and intriguing. Carolynne

  2. You would love her writing book -- especially the first part, which tells how she became first a nurse and then a writer.

  3. I love the idea of going deeper into imagination. I am trying to do that too with my dream to become an inspiring author. www.createspace.com/4351776 and www.createspace.com/4263297
