A Writer’s Notes #21

Final thought on being a writer; this from Benjamin Moser, author of Why This World: A Biography of Clarice Lispector. “Clear expression can come only from clear thinking…The real talent turns out to be sitting down, propelling oneself, day after day, through the self-doubt surrounding our nebulous enterprise, trying to believe, as when we began, that writing is important…We never know if we are doing it right. A writer—independent of publication or readership or ‘career’—is always a writer…Writing, after all, is something one does. A writer is something one is.”
