"Many suffer the incurable disease of writing, and it becomes chronic in their sick minds."

Current mood: compassionate

Category: Writing and Poetry

The above quote is from Juvenal.

Some people believe they must suffer for their art. They often have so little to show for it, one wonders if pain itself isn't the goal, and art the means of achieving it, not the other way around.


In life it is not
the journey that counts, it is
the deprivation.

(Deeplip, from her novella-in-verse Unreqwerty'd Love: the story of belle and play.)
