Because one has written other books does not mean the next becomes easier. Each book in fact is a tabula rasa; from book to book I seem to forget how to get characters in and out of rooms—a far more difficult task than the non-writer might think. Still I went to my office every day. That is the difference between the professional and the amateur. The professional guts a book through this period, in full knowledge that what he is doing is not very good. Not to work is to exhibit a failure of nerve, and a failure of nerve is the best definition I know for writer’s block.
“Necesitas a alguien que te ayude a hacer realidad tus sueños y que sepa protegerte de tus temores. Necesitas a alguien que te trate con respeto, que ame cada parte de ti, sobre todo tus defectos. Deberías estar con alguien que supiera hacerte feliz, realmente feliz, que te hiciera sentir en las nubes de tanta felicidad”.
