E.J., forever and always
"It took me years to learn to sit at my desk for more than two minutes at a time, to put up with the solitude and the terror of failure, and the godawful silence and the white paper. And now that I can take it, now that I can finally do it, I'm really raring to go.... I was in my study writing. I was learning how to go down into myself and salvage bits and pieces of the past."
