By not writing, one is obeying the urgent inner command not to define one’s self, not to grow and develop into that sad and limited creature, a minor (or possibly never-published) poet or whatever. Instead, one stays interestingly, potentially great the rest of one’s life.
~Victoria Nelson, from On Writer’s Block
