Quote of the day

Writing, in my experience, consists of long periods of hanging out, punctuated by the fugue of remorse at the loss of one’s powers and wonder at occasional output in spite of that loss.

I hear, as do we all, of those people who spend eight to ten hours a day at their typewriters, and I think, has no one told them of the Nap?

– David Mamet

Speaking as someone currently surrounded by a laptop, a notebook, pen, paper, ukulele, blank canvas (in the literal sense), and a mug of tea; one could say I feel a certain affinity with this quotation.
