Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand. ~George Orwell
Most days writing is a joy.
But there are days, especially when I feel the words won’t obey my commands no matter how hard I pound on the keyboard, that I think George was on to something.
Writerly friends: Demon or Muse?
