Stephen King on writing and not quitting… I like this one. How can anyone possible say the this man is not "passionate" about what he does! In my opinion he is ultimately gifted, dedicated, and passionate about his writing.
The writer must be in it, we can't be to one side of it, ever. He has to be endangered by it. His own attitudes have to be tested in it. The best work that anybody ever writes is the work that is on the verge of embarrassing him, always.
