It’s a busy time of year and easy to feel down on yourself because you’re not writing enough/getting that great book deal/chatting with Oprah on her private island. But you’re not alone–even famous writers feel down about themselves sometimes. My favorite:
“At the end of a miserable day, instead of grieving my virtual nothing, I can always look at my loaded wastepaper basket and tell myself that if I failed, at least I took a few trees down with me.”–David Sedaris
Take that, trees!
