This is now my new email signature

Let me tell you about writers.

Writers sit. Then, after a while, they stand. They pace. They sit again. Sometimes, they talk on the telephone. Or they surf the Internet. At some point, they generate words. They go over those words. Then they generate some more. They stand up. They sit down.

I have just revealed to you the great secret life of the writer.

-- John Podhoretz, "The Writerly Life," The Weekly Standard, 2/11/08

What more need be said?
