quip quote: writing is fun!

Of course, you'd never know it based on this quote...

Composition is, for the most part, an effort of slow diligence and steady perseverance, to which the mind is dragged by necessity or resolution, and from which the attention is every moment starting to more delightful amusements.

-- Samuel Johnson

"Diligence" is a word I've used so very much lately.

So this is why I am working on something and then I keep checking facebook and my blog. It's the whole "writing is hard and distractions are shiny and fun" thing. Thanks Mr. Johnson! Ohh look ribbon! Got to go!
