“But unlike some writers, like P.D. James or Elizabeth George, who outline and work from their outlines, I find that I can’t do that. And I have to write to see where the story’s going. And sometimes I just write myself into a dead end. And sometimes that’s 200 pages into the book and I have to just weep and bid it goodbye and start over again.”

Sara Paretsky, author of the V. I. Warshawski mystery series
