The Plot of an Essay

My fellow Goucherite Janet Alexander Pell sent me a collection of quotes for writers that she pulled together. Today, I like this one in particular:

Essays are not arranged by plot, but by anxieties. They don't wonder, "What next?" Instead, like a worried parent they ask, "Now what?" with a groan.
--Steven Harvey
