                                                        On Writer’s Block

                                         Victor Hugo had his servants hide his clothes
                                         so that he couldn’t go out until he had written

                                         his daily quota of words, and Balzac drank upwards
                                         of 50 cups of coffee a day to prevent his creativity

                                         from flagging, but just as the blackbird is not a crow,
                                         I’m not that kind of desperate – I mean, yet.
