Lernen von den Großen: Schreibtipps von Iris Murdoch (Interview „The Paris Review“, Nr.115, 1990)

„I think it is important to make a detailed plan before you write the first sentence. Some people think one should write, George woke up and knew that something terrible had happened yesterday, and then see what happens. I plan the whole thing in detail before I begin. I have a general scheme and lots of notes. Every chapter is planned. Every conversation is planned.“
