Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Quote of the Day

with one comment

I suppose that a novelist’s life is not more full of embarrassments than anybody else’s. There is no art or profession, except possibly higher mathematics, which one can practise without exposing oneself to amateur criticism and interference.

A novelist’s trade, however, is the only one in which his acquaintances insist on coming right into the workshop and playing with the tools.
