Quote of the Day

"You have to get over the notion that you are wasting your time by sitting and writing, by thinking and feeling frustrated at what you've written, and staring out the window and doodling and closing your eyes and seeing these made-up people and imagining their lives. You are doing your job even if those who peek into your writing room and see you gazing off into space think you are squandering your life--they can't see what you see."

from Is Life Like This? A Guide to Writing Your First Novel in Six Months, by John Dufresne
