Humans Spend One-Third of Their Lives Sleeping; Writers Spend One-Third of Their Careers ... Waiting
At least, that's what it seems like. When interviewed, writers are always asked the same questions - about process; about productivity; about motivation and inspiration and 'sticking with it.' I've never read an interview where one writer asked another, "What do you do while you're in the waiting phase?" It's weird.
Wait for it.
