Relax into Time

tobias_wolff "The one thing I would say to a young writer who wanted counsel is to be patient. Time, which is your enemy in almost everything in this life, is your friend in writing. It is. If you can relax into time, not fight it, not fret at its passing, you will become better. You probably won’t be very good at the beginning, but you will become better and eventually you may become good."

~ Tobias Wolff, "The Art of Fiction No. 183," The Paris Review (No. 171, Fall 2004)
