Wisdom of Sherwood Anderson 2

“When (Sherwood Anderson) felt he could steal the time, he wrote at the office. In his room at home he acted out his life and sat in silence, but he spent most of his time there - often most of the night - writing” (65).

To be a writer, you have to write. That’s all there is to it. You can’t spend all of your time watching TV, playing video games, or hanging out with friends. You have to write. And if you’re serious about it, you will write every time you have a chance to do it. There are way too many things that can get in your way. Even our own procrastination will get in our way. Sometimes, we just don’t feel like writing. We like to use the excuse of writer’s block. If you’re blocked on one story, work on another one. Anderson wrote all types of things.
