writing is like driving on the wrong side of the road
IN 1967, THE SWEDISH GOVERNMENT changed the side of the road on which drivers drove from the left to the right. Counterintuitively, the number of accidents over the next couple of years decreased dramatically. Why? Because drivers suddenly had to pay attention to the act of driving. That’s what writing is like for me. That is why I love it. It requires my focus and attention more so than most other tasks I undertake in a day.
