A Bit of Inspiration: Learning From Others

Here is a tidbit I ran across when I first began writing and have kept in my files for years. Many times when I have become overwhelmed and buried by a particular writing task, I think back to this passage and it has helped me, eventually, dig my way out again.

 

“If I could do this book properly it would be one of the really fine books and a truly American book.  But I am assailed with my own ignorance and inability.  I’ll just have to work from a background of these.  Honesty.  If I can keep an honesty it is all I can expect of my poor brain…If I can do that it will be all my lack of genius can produce.  For no one else knows my lack of ability the way I do.  I am pushing against it all the time.”

 

This quote was taken from the daily journal of John Steinbeck, written less than four weeks after beginning The Grapes of Wrath.
