The Inner Critic

“There is neither a proportional relationship, nor an inverse one, between a writer’s estimation of a work in progress and its actual quality.  The feeling that the work is magnificent, and the feeling that it is abominable, are both mosquitoes to be repelled, ignored, or killed, but not indulged.”

~Annie Dillard, from The Writing Life
