I'm in the throes of writing another book ... this would be the book I'm writing now that the book I was working on is in production. I love/hate/love being a writer. I love/hate/love the creative process. Knowing this, a friend recently told me to read Do the Work by Steven Pressfield. I did and, among other gems, found this:
We're poised at the brink of a creative breakthrough and we can't stand it. The prospect of success looms. We freak. Why did we start this project? We must have been insane. Who encouraged us? We want to wring their necks. Where are they now? Why can't they help us?
