Little by Little

Little by little, I found the beat again, and after that I found the joy again.

I came back to my family with gratitude,

and back to my work with relief -

I came back to it the way folks come back to a summer cottage after a long winter, checking first to make sure nothing has been stolen or broken during the cold season.  Nothing had been.

It was still all there, still all whole.

Once the pipes were thawed out and the electricity was turned back on,

everything worked fine.

~ Stephen King, On Writing

One comment on “Little by Little”

  1. I just finished rereading this book. The audiobook is very good. I found this part especially reassuring, that even the great master had a time where he was completely frigid.

    The way he writes though? He's almost my complete opposite, haha. He flies by the seat of his pants, and I'm methodical. He talks about slowing down like it'll kill your story, but if I move too fast I leave my story in my dust. I'm like Hemingway, who reread everything in the chapter before continuing it, and who reread the whole book once a week just so he'd have a clearer image of it. I don't reread everything once a week, but I try to every month or so.
