Quote of the day: On Writing



"But let’s get real: writing is not a “fucking great” job. It does not attract happy people, nor does it make its unhappy practitioners any less unhappy". 

"For writers who have found neither inner peace nor boatloads of cash, and certainly not both at once, for those just trying to get health insurance and scrape together some hope for the future, it feels somewhat inaccurate to hear the writing life described as having “everything to recommend it over real work”..."

"We write because we are constantly discontented with almost everything, and need to use words to rearrange it, all of it, and set the record straight."



New Yorker
