2 thoughts on the writing life...

"Writing a book is an endurance contest, and a war fought against yourself, because writing is beastly hard work which one would just as soon not do. It's also a job, and if you want to get paid, you have to work. Life is cruel that way."

~~by Tom Clancy

"We all ended up just the tiniest bit resentful when we found the one fly in the ointment: that at some point we had to actually sit down and write."

~~Anne Lamott in Bird by Bird

What's cruel is making the discovery that writing is the only thing you can do well.
