Toni Morrison - Writing Advice!!

I am across an article on titled, “YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING.” AND OTHER WRITING ADVICE FROM TONI MORRISON by Emily Temple. In the article, Emily Temple wrote the following:
I can’t think of another writer who is quite so universally beloved as Toni Morrison. Her work is magnificent, her legacy is unimpeachable, and she reveals her brilliance at every opportunity. She also taught for many years at Princeton, and I think it’s safe to assume she knows a thing or two about nurturing young minds. So, using the relatively flimsy excuse of her birthday—Morrison turns 88 on Monday, which is also Presidents’ Day (is this a sign?)—I sifted through her interviews and speeches to find out what she thinks about writing. I’ve highlighted some of her wisdom below.

  1. I am part of the universal love for Toni Morrison. But the other night I found that in one of my reading groups only two people had read her and that was her most famous book, Beloved. I have read all of her novels and look forward to rereading them. She is that great!

    1. I've only read The Bluest Eyes by Toni Morrison for a college literature course. I enjoyed the novel, but never read any of her other novels.
