Joyce Carol Oates

Joyce Carol Oates

I read one of her pieces in class the other day:
"Where are you going, Where have you been".

In case you aren't sure who she is,
She is a novelist, Pulitzer Prize Winner,
Graduate of Princeton University in creative writing.

And I had no idea how beautiful she is.

I really love this best:
“If you are a writer you locate yourself behind a wall of silence
and no matter what you are doing, driving a car or walking or doing housework
you can still be writing, because you have that space.”
