Hormones

“…there’s a hormone secreted into the bloodstream of most writers that makes them hate their own work while they are doing it, or immediately after. This, coupled with the chorus of critical reaction from those privileged to take a first look, is almost enough to discourage further work entirely.”

Francis Ford Coppola, “Letter to the Reader,” Zoetrope Magazine

Despite the roadblocks, bumps in the road and wrong turns…it’s nice to know I travel in good company.

Muse: You are wasting time. Get back to work.
Me: (Sigh) What would I do without your encouragement?
Muse: How about…go back to your day job?
