A Word on Writers

Illness has kept me quiet the past couple of days. Here's hoping it abates soon.

For now, I was overjoyed to find this quotation the other day. I had written it out years ago, but lost it. It comes from Antonin Artaud, the French playwright and poet. I really might stick this on my computer for inspiration. I believe this from time to time, and yet I want to write. That should tell you all you need to know about my psychology. Here it is:

"All writing is garbage. People who come out of nowhere to try to put into words any part of what goes on in their minds are pigs."
