How Tru

Here’s a quotation from Truman Capote. I looked at these words often as I was struggling with the structure for Revolution and they helped. If you’re struggling with a story, I hope they help you, too:

Finding the right form for your story is simply to realize the most natural way of telling the story.

The test of whether or not a writer has divined the natural shape of his story is just this: After reading it, can you imagine it differently, or does it silence your imagination and seem to you absolute and final?

As an orange is final. As an orange is something nature has made just right.

With best wishes,
Jennifer Donnelly
