Comments: A Random Stream of Thoughts

Benjamin - some words from H.L. Mencken you may find of interest in regards to your lament/question.

"I do not believe it is possible for a man to write more in a day of 10 hours--that is, more of the best that is in him, more than is genuinely worth writing--than he writes in a day of three hours. The view to the contrary, so common among young authors, is a great delusion. It is grounded upon the error of assuming that creative work is a mere matter of time. It is, in fact, nothing of the sort; it is merely a matter purely of ideas. The more good ideas, the better the artist."

From a Mencken column entitled "The Trade of Letters" which was originally published in "The Chicago Tribune," December 28, 1924

I think I've commented at your blogspot site before, but this may be the first time that I've ever been to your weblog at this website. I've had you blogrolled for awhile... That link is likely still to your old blogspot site, though. I guess it should be changed.

Keep up the good work.
