I don’t want to associate my writing with guilt.

This resonated with me:


I think they key is this: I know that it takes a long time to write a good novel. It will take me at least two years, but probably three. I can’t beat myself up for missing these days. All I can do is promise myself that I will do better. …… Whatever happens, I don’t want to associate my writing with guilt. I have enough stuff to feel guilty about. …

Everyone has their issues. Guilt is mine. Should I ever write that memoir I’ve mentioned, it will be a major theme.
