It's also the worse thing about being a writer. (I have to be my own accountant, booking agent, and make myself write.)

I first felt guilty if I was not writing 90% of the time .. I now realise over the life of a book or article i'm working on, the writing is only 25% of the time. the rest of the time I'm thinking, correcting, checking the names of places, sorting photos, traveling, taking notes and all the rest!(less)

Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance

Arundhati Roy
“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”
Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living
