George Orwell: “Writing a book is a like a long bout of painful illness.”

George Orwell - Dorset, Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire

“All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.”

~ GEORGE ORWELL
