“The act of writing is an integral part of my mental life; ideas emerge, are shaped, in the act of writing… a special, indispensable form of talking to myself.”
I love this quote from Oliver Sacks. It’s nice to go back to this on days when “the act of writing” is just kicking your ass. Most of us love writing, I think, because it helps us, forces us, to sort out our own thoughts. That’s why it’s so magical.
