"But on other days, like today, I’d be plagued with innumerable self-doubts. I’d ultimately feel that it was pointless, futile. I’d feel that I didn’t have the time or the energy for anything like this. Here I am, sitting on enough material in my Campbell’s Soup box for several novels, and I don’t even have time to write a matchbook cover, and even if I did, it’d be fruitless because who’s going to be interested in the garbage that I have to say, anyway?"
