Less talk, more work

As the artist Chuck Close said: 'Amateurs look for inspiration; the rest of us just get up and go to work.'
--Jon Carroll, column for Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2007

Just finished a novella. (Damn, that sentence was fun to write.) I don't write much about writing--it seems silly. I'd rather just go write novellas and novels (and lions and tigers. Oh my.)

But check out Jon Carroll. He's one of my favorite writers.

Fan-frakkin'-tastic! I mean, ahem, as a writer, I must say in all eloquence, that it is deeply, deeply satisfying.
