The Muse is a Lie

"Every writer I know has trouble writing." -Joseph Heller

“The story goes on and leaves the writer behind, for no story is ever done.”

“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.”
