Art of Writing

One of the best quotes I’ve seen so far on the art of writing is one I found quoted in John D. Barrow’s The Universe That Discovered Itself. Among the quotes at the beginning of this book is one from Mary Heaton Vorse :

The art of writing is the art of applying

the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair.

Well, it is precisely the kind of advice a person like me needs. I should hang this up in every corner of my house.
