Tales of Drudgery & Boredom.

Schrijven (of om het even wat, eigenlijk)

Neil Gaiman zegt ware dingen:

People who want to be writers say, what should I do? And you say, write!

And they’ll say, then what? And you say, well, finish things!

And they say, well, then what? Well, write something else. That’s how you do it.

If you do it over and over, sooner or later you’re going to be writing stuff that’s publishable. And if you keep doing it, you’ll probably get fairly good.

You have, you know, a million lousy words inside you, and you’ve got to get them out. I think there’s something very real and very true in that. How do you do it? You do it. Look at other people. Learn everything you can from everywhere. The most important thing is to do it.



  1. The biggest obstacle for any writer is the first word. Once that’s down there, the rest follows.

  2. Dus, zoals eerder gezegd:schrijf.
