Quotables: Crank It Out.

In the beginning, when there are zero pages, you have to cheer yourself into cranking stuff out, even if it later lands on the cutting room floor. Each page takes you somewhere you need to travel before you can land in the next spot.

    I love this Quotable from Mary Karr. I’m going to frame this picture and put it on my desk. It removes a weight from the process of new writing. Thanks!
