One Sultry September Sunday –

When we sit down day after day and keep grinding,

…something mysterious starts to happen. A process is set into motion by which, inevitably and infallibly, heaven comes to our aid…

Unseen forces enlist in our cause; serendipity reinforces our purpose.  

This is the other secret that real artists know and wannabe writers don’t. When we sit down each day and do our work,

…power concentrates around us. 

The Muse takes note of our dedication. She approves. 

We have earned favor in her sight. When we sit down and work,

 …we become like a magnetized rod that attracts iron filings –

  Ideas come. Insights accrete.”

StevenPressfield, The War Of Art
