The road to perfection

with one comment

Sherwood Anderson

The result of scribbling, the tale of perfect balance, all the elements of the tale understood, and an infinite number of minute adjustments perfectly made, the power of self-criticism fully at work, the shifting surface of word values and color in full play, form and rhythmic flow of thought and mood marching forward with the sentences—these are things of a dream, of a dim far day toward which one goes knowing one can never arrive but infinitely glad to be on the road.
