“I always find that if I have a day of really good writing, I read it the next day and it’s awful. And if I have a day of really bad writing, I sit down the next day and it’s pretty good. I think we don’t know while we’re writing if it’s any good. I don’t. I know the next day.”

“Redefine writer’s block as a time of gestation. Trust that when you’re ‘blocked’, you’re not actually blocked. It’s just that the ideas are forming. It’s a very frustrating time and it always happens. You have to tell yourself, every single time: ‘Stop feeling guilty and embrace how awful this feels’. It’s that moment that you have to have until you finally sit down and begin.”
