I finally understand. The most beautiful, brilliant stories are not made from words. They are made from hours and hours of someone sitting in a chair, not yielding to the hundred different distractions that come along. These stories are a choice made over and over and over again. Sit in the chair. Put words together. Fasten them with hours and hours of patient attention.
Do this every day. Every chance you get. When you consider that you might not do this today, do it anyway.
I get it. I finally understand. I’ve been giving the words. I haven’t been giving the hours.
