Sontag on Writing

"Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration's shove

or society's kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It's all about

paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with

others. It makes you eager. Stay eager."

~ Susan Sontag, from a lecture about writing at Vassar College
