Sunday Slump: Joyce Carol Oates

“The first sentence can’t be written until the final sentence is written.”
Joyce Carol Oates, April 1986

Is this true for your writing?

For me, I start with the first sentence, but I have a good idea of where I’m going and might go back to the beginning and change that sentence after I’ve written the final sentence.
