Beginning with a sense of dread and trepidation: Susan Sontag Quotes for Writers (and people who like quotes)

divingI always begin with a great sense of dread and trepidation. Nietzsche says that the decision to start writing is like leaping into a cold lake. Only when I’m about a third of the way can I tell if it’s good enough. Then I have my cards, and I can play my hand.
Susan Sontag
