write the motherfucking heart out

Virginia Woolf
Flannery O'Connor
Grace Paley
Eudora Welty
Katherine Anne Porter


My goal for this winter and spring is to finish the collection of stories I've been writing for many years. In other words: write the motherfucking heart out. When I think of doing so I think of these women, who were badass in many ways, and who for the months ahead shall be my heroes and muses, jeering and goading from the sidelines.  Can I do this? Feel free to take your place by their sides in keeping me true to my word.
