"...sometimes when my writer friends are working, they feel better and more alive than they do at any other time. And sometimes when they are writing well, they feel that they are living up to something. It is as if the right words, the true words, are already inside them, and they just want to get them out. Writing this way is a little like milking a cow, the milk is so rich and delicious, and the cow is so glad you did it." -Bird By Bird intro by Anne Lamott
Be forewarned...this cow has an engorged utter, ready to spew.
