Louise Erdrich On Learning to Wait

"Writers make few choices, really, about their material. We have to write about what comes naturally and what interests us—so I do. I also write about Germans in Minnesota and have set The Antelope Wife in Minneapolis. Nothing I force myself to write about ever turns out well, and so I’ve learned to wait for the voice, the incident, the image that reverberates." - National Book Award Winner Louise Erdrich: How I Write, The Daily Beast
