In Which I Work Myself Into a Creative Delusional Frenzy Hoping to Ward Off the Tedium of Classwork

Following are two bits of advice Tony Soltis (writer of Saved By the Bell) received regarding writing.
“You already know the deepest truths to human stories, it’s in your heart. You just need a benign organizing presence to encourage it.”
-David Milch
“Writing is hard work. That’s why in school it’s given out as punishment.”
-Unknown
Then below are his own thoughts on writing and writers. I’m hoping some of this will provide inspiration for my own pursuits – writing or otherwise.
“How to tell if you’re a writer… If your normal state of mind is kind of a feeling of dread, a constant dull sadness, a haunting sense of inadequacy, and when you’re writing this goes away because you get this innate sense of understanding God, you’re probably one of us.” – Tony Soltis
In fact, I inhabit feelings of dread, constant dull sadness, and a haunting sense of inadequacy, oh at least hourly. There’s hope for me yet!
