First Things Last

"The last thing one discovers in composing a work is what to put first."

— T.S. Eliot

"Writing is a deep-sea dive. You need hours just to get into it: down, down, down. If you're called back to the surface every couple of minutes by an email, you can't ever get back down. I have a great friend who became a Twitterer and he says he hasn't written anything for a year."

Dave Eggers
