“You will write,” [Gertrude Stein] said, “if you will write without thinking of the result in terms of a result, but think of the writing in terms of discovery, which is to say that creation must take place between the pen and the paper, not before in a thought or afterwards in a recasting.  Yes, before in a thought, but not in careful thinking.  It will come if it is there and if you will let it come, and if you have anything you will get a sudden creative recognition.  You won’t know how it was, even what it is, but it will be creation if it came out of the pen and out of you and not out of an architectural drawing of the thing you are doing.  Technique is not so much a thing of form or style as the way that form or style came and how it can come again.”

—John Hyde Preston, from A Conversation with Gertrude Stein in the book The Creative Process: Reflections on Invention in the Arts and Sciences (University of California Press, 1985)

This is not what you imagined your life would be like when you were seventeen, all this incessant working.

But, when you consider the alternative, which would likely involve the not working, to be closely followed by the not paying your bills, the not driving your current car, and ultimately, the not not living in your parent’s basement…

Ayyy! The basement!
