The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters

Because as any writer will tell you, an IDEA for a book is like falling in love, it’s all wild emotion and headlong rush, but the ACTUAL ACT of writing a book is like building a relationship: it is joyous, slow, fragile, frustrating, exhilarating, painstaking, exhausting, worth it.

Work, Sometimes by Mary Oliver

[…] As for myself, I swung the door open. And there wasthe wordless, singing world. And I ran for my life.
