The challenge of writing
Is to see your horribleness on page
To see your terribleness 
And then to go to bed
And wake up the next day
And take that horribleness and that terribleness 
And refine it
And make it not so terrible and not so horrible
And then to go to bed again
And come back the next day
And refine it a little bit more
And make it not so bad
And then to go to bed the next day
And do it again
And make it maybe average
And then one more time
If you're lucky
Maybe you get to good
And if you've done that
That's a success

Ta-Nehisi Coates
