Hi all,

This might be an old article (I didn't find a posting date for it), but I found it an interesting read, and I particularly liked the advice the author gives at the end on how to be a writer. For me, the best bit was this:

You can only write regularly if youíre willing to write badly. You canít write regularly and well. One should accept bad writing as a way of priming the pump, a warm-up exercise that allows you to write well.
-- Jennifer Egan
