Sitting down to work

16Apr07

Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have lies in this;
when I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly.
Day and night it is before me.
My mind becomes pervaded by it.
Then the effort I have made is what people call the fruit of genius. It is fruit of labor and thought. –Alexander Hamilton

There is a secret that real writers know that wannabe writers don’t, and the secret is this: It’s not the writing part that’s hard. What’s hard is sitting down to write.
What keeps us from sitting down is Resistance. –Steven Pressfield
