I write toward...

"When I write, I aim in my mind not toward New York but toward a vague spot a little east of Kansas. I think of the books on library shelves, without their jackets, years old, and a countryish teen-aged boy finding them, and having them speak to him."

~~John Updike

"Vague spot" indeed. Updike never wrote toward a vague spot. Any spot toward which he wrote was as clear as words could make it.
