A sneak look inside:

“Yes, these are her kind of people: Midwestern, rural, practical, ‘use-it-up, don’t-waste-that-crust’ kind of people.  Good people at heart.  Mostly religious people who find meaning in where you park your car (your buggy?).  Not first in line; not on someone’s grass after a hard rain; not where you can’t back out if you need to leave suddenly.  People who find satisfaction in the daily task.  The everyday.”

Carrie

 

“Sure, bad things happen; there are odds.  But you don’t need to act like you expect something to spoil all the pleasure that’s out there, like you’re scared to death.”

Charlotte

 

Someone still needs her!  Isn’t that what everyone wants?  To stand on the side of good.  To know that your life means something, that what you say and do–what you choose–matters to someone else.”

Martha

 

On Writing Passion:

As I write, I recall advice from the past.

“If you start with a real personality, a real character, then something is bound to happen; and you don’t have to know what before you begin.”
Flannery O’Connor

“Every work of art adheres to some sense of morality. But if it be really a work of art, it must contain the essential criticism of the morality to which it adheres.”
D. H. Lawrence
