Driving in the Dark

It's like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
~ E.L. Doctorow

I think sometimes we get too caught up in the big picture when we are writing.  When you have to drive from coast to coast, it helps to have a map and a general idea of where you need to go and when.  But our true focus should always be on the road right in front of us.  If we get lost, take a wrong road, or find ourselves at a detour, we can always reroute and redirect.

While it can help to have perspective of our writing as a whole, when it comes time to write, we need to focus on what's right in front of us.  Just a thought for the day!
