“I see it in my students – this idea that I have spent all these hours, days, even weeks, on these pages, on this story, they must be good. Well, the truth is that it is quite possible that they aren’t. It doesn’t matter that you spent all this time on it. It still might not work.” ~ Sigrid Nunez (author of The Last of Her Kind), interviewed by Robert Birnbaum, Writers Ask (Issue 49)
