“I am irritated by my own writing. I am like a violinist whose ear is true, but whose fingers refuse to reproduce precisely the sound he hears within.” ~~Gustave Flaubert

Another crisis this week. Writing is excruciating. Does anyone else feel like this? Are we all masochists?

Irritated doesn’t even come close—try agonized, tortured, tormented, crucified. Well, crucified may be a little over the top.

I am a failure. I am a hack. I am a poseur.

Okay, that’s over. Back to work.

To all our American friends out there, have a great Thanksgiving.
