As we go through the long hot summer and try to write, here's a great quote to keep in mind:
“Perhaps it would be better not to be a writer, but, if you must, then write. If it all feels helpless, if that famous ‘inspiration’ will not come, write. If you are a genius, you’ll make your own rules, but if not—and the odds are against it—go to your desk, no matter what your mood, face the icy challenge of the paper—write." J.B. Priestly
During summer's heat, rise to that "icy challenge" and write.
