Writer’s Platitude for the Weekend

broken pencil“I decided a long time ago that writers should not be encouraged. They should be discouraged. That’s more helpful to a writer than encouragement, because I think he’s going to learn a lot more that way.” I decided a long time ago that Erskine Caldwell ought to stick to writing, and keep his advice to himself.
