Friday Quote: On Writing

"We should be told: Write fast, write close to the bone, write for ten hours straight until you're not thinking in words anymore but in colors, in smells, in waves of memory. Write what you care about. Don't waste any more of your life on what does not matter to you."

--Bonnie Friedman

wow... I've pulled some long periods of writing before, but nothing close to 10 hours straight. It almost makes me want go there.
