“The act of writing, the aiming at getting it right, is pure thrill, pure process, as exciting as drawing back a bow.  Hitting a creative bulls-eye, a sentence that precisely expresses what you see shimmering on the horizon—these sentences are worth the chase—but the chase itself, the things you catch out of the corner of your eye, that’s worth something too.  I love it when I write well, but I love it when I write, period.”

Julia Cameron, The Right to Write (New York: Tarcher/Putnam, 1998), 4.
