Diane Johnson

"My impression is that, though different writers find the genesis of a novel in different ways, all are alike in their sense of having the work inside them in some potential form. The analogy to gestation is very exact. The work must be born to be known."

from her essay "Aspiradora" in The Writer on Her Work, Volume II, edited by Janet Sternburg, 1991)
