Goodreads asked Diane de Simone:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Diane de Simone As a writer I'm learning all the time....and also I get to peel away at the layers that keep me from more deeply seeing/feeling/integrating aspects of being alive, of being this life.
As a writer I learn more about what I know --I'm often surprised at words that arrive on a page, in a line.
I learn more about what I think about something ( wow-- I think that? Believe that?)
I learn more about what I've been picking up through all of my senses..
And I get to play with how best to articulate all that....What words in what combination, in what rhythm....to evoke what??!!
