something learned


More pithiness from Neil Gaiman. Gotta reread American Gods sometime.

…I saved the document on the computer, and I realised I’d finished writing a book.
I wondered what I’d learned, and found myself remembering something Gene Wolfe had told me, six months earlier. “You never learn how to write a novel,” he said. “You just learn how to write the novel that you’re writing.”

This housing search has really put a crimp in my reading and writing schedule. I’ve only read 4 books this month so far, and I don’t think I’ve done any writing at all. I know I had some ideas, though…hopefully they’ll wait until figure out my living situation. And when I have a house…maybe I’ll have a dedicated writing room. Here’s hoping.
