I’m horribly tired and stupefied, but not yet tired and stupefied enough. To write is impossible but not yet impossible enough. That’s how I cod myself these days.
Samuel Beckett, in a letter to Barney Rosset, February 11, 1954.
Do you want to know the real difference between writers and wannabe writers? Showing up. That’s it–the big secret. Those who write, write.
