“A GOOD NOVEL TELLS US THE TRUTH ABOUT ITS HERO, BUT A BAD NOVEL TELLS US THE TRUTH ABOUT ITS AUTHOR.” — G.K. CHESTERTON.
I’m writing a first draft and reminding myself that I’m simply shoveling sand into a box so that later I can build castles.
What they call you is one thing. What you answer to is something else.
A genius! For 37 years I’ve practised fourteen hours a day, and now they call me a genius!
~ Pablo de Sarasate
