I like this quote so much, I’ve permanently (kind of) etched it into the sidebar of my blog. It actually came from the September issue of Writer’s Digest.
“A writer who waits for inspiration will never write, and feeling inspired doesn’t guarantee the writer will produce good work. Tie yourself to your chair. That’s how you become a writer.”
~Joshua Henkin, novelist and coordinator of the MFA program in fiction writing at Brooklyn College
