Marry somebody you love and who thinks you being a writer’s a good idea.
RICHARD FORD(via wordsflowfromveins)
All writers are vain, selfish, and lazy, and at the end of their motives there lies a mystery. Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.
— George Orwell (via theofficialashleynoel)
