Never Gets Easier

Written Wisdom Quote of the Week

From John Steinbeck: "I have written a great many stories, and I still don't know how to go about it except to write it and take my chances."

I wish I could say this was false, but, sadly, it seems to be true. I've talked with authors who have published dozens of books, and they say pretty much the same thing. Apparently, it never gets any easier.

At least in my experience it doesn't. As an author, I always seem to be imitating Michaelangelo, chipping away at a block of stone to reveal the angel within.
