Phillip K Dick on Writing

I used to write all the time. I used to just get up at noon and sit down at the typewriter and write until two a.m. You've got to do that when you start out or you're gonna die on the vine. I mean, you've gonna live on two thousand dollars a year, and you're gonna eat rocks and dirt and weeds from the back yard fro the first ten years. And then after the first ten years, you get to eat instant breakfast. Then you work you way up so that you're rich enough to get a phone put in and buy an old automobile.

Yeah, he hit the nail on the head. Funny thing though, by his measure, I'm actually ahead of the game?
