E. B. White knows how writers struggle with distractions, both great and small, as we seek to write, to create.
My friend, I urge you to pin this, print this, tweet this…to remind you to live this. Forgo the distractions and go about the business of writing.
“[C]reation is in part merely the business of forgoing the great and small distractions.”
