[T]he essential impulse in working is … to allow what haunts you to have a voice.” – Colm Toibin
I knew the moment I came across this quote today in a piece on The New Yorker Page-Turner blog that it was the thing I would focus on doing in my writing this coming year. I wrote The Wednesday Sisters with little prospect of publication, focused on what I wanted to write and read. In the wake of its success, I sometimes find myself worrying about what readers want to read, but that isn’t the way to great stories. I’ve just finished The Wednesday Daughters, and am sorting out what I to write next, so I’ll be doing some exploring of the things that haunt me. – Meg
