A quotable. Quoted.

Gaiman. Quoting Samuel R. Delany’s About Writing:

Writers are people who write. By and large, they are not happy people. They’re not good at relationships. Often they’re drunks. And writing — good writing — does not get easier and easier with practice. It gets harder and harder — so eventually the writer must stall out into silence.The silence that waits for every writer and that, inevitably, if only with death (if we’re lucky the two may happen at the same time: but they are still two, and their coincidence is rare), the writer must fall into is angst-ridden and terrifying – and often drives us mad. (In a letter to Allen Tate, the poet Hart Crane once described writing as “dancing on dynamite.”) So if you’re not a writer, consider yourself fortunate.

Fab-o Misters Gaiman and Delany. Fab-o.

(I strongly dislike that piss-poor at relationships piece. I identify with it, but I strongly dislike it.)

Rob Paravonian – Pachalbel Rant (It makes me giggle. It also makes me think of Mom – she plays cello and, thusly, will not be playing Pachelbel’s Cannon in D at my wedding – and that makes me smile.)
