Getting Back at It

For today, just one truth from Annie Dillard:

When you are writing full-time (three to four hours a day), go in the room with the book every day, regardless of your feelings. If you skip a day it will take three painful days to get to believing in the work again.(emphasis mine)

For me, “the room with the book” is a coffeehouse. Today I’m thinking Cup O’ Joe. I’m packing up and I’m outta here!
