Wednesday Wisdom for Writers and Those Who Love Them

"Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand." — George Orwell

The thing to me is that there are moments of complete surprise. Even confidence and ecstasy. Without those moments (seconds, perhaps) to experience and then to dream about occuring again, writing would become a drudgery. Many of us who write would be on to the next thing.

But we're not. Because we're hooked.

It's all better with friends.
