Like a fruit seller...

An excerpt:

     This is how to write.  First button on your writing jacket.  Then stuff your pockets with seaweed crackers.  Then sit very still and think.  Last but not least, choose words and line them up -- like a fruit seller who chooses her best mangoes and pomegranates and bananas and puts them on display.  And when you're done -- yay! -- a story.

I guess I need to get myself a writing jacket and some seaweed crackers! ;)
