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
