This is terrific, copied from a writing journal found in my English notebook, freshman year of college.

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. once spoke of writers:

Our power is patience. We have discovered that writing allows even a stupid person to seem halfway intelligent, if only that person will write the same thought over again, improving it just a little bit each time. It is a little like inflating a blimp with a bicycle pump. Anybody can do it. All it takes is time.
