Be kind – be anxious, says Roddy Doyle. Quotes for writers (and people who like quotes)

Irish author Roddy DoyleDo be kind to yourself. Fill pages as quickly as possible; double space, or write on every second line. Regard every new page as a small triumph, until you get to page 50. Then calm down, and start worrying about the quality. Do feel anxiety – it’s the job.
Roddy Doyle
