Keeping at it...

It is worth mentioning, for future reference, that the creative power which bubbles so pleasantly in beginning a new book quiets down after a time, and one goes on more steadily. Doubts creep in. Then one becomes resigned. Determination not to give in, and the sense of an impending shape keep one at it more than anything.

After a time? How about after ten minutes. I've lost count how many times I hurriedly scribble the seed of an idea, put it away, and rediscover it later wondering what the heck I was thinking of. Guess I need to learn how to scribble faster.
