Quote of the Day (Mirza Waheed, on What It Means to be a Writer)

“A bad back, sleep deprivation, loneliness, moods, lack of money. An unmatched high when it’s going well. Ecstasy when a sentence, paragraph or chapter turns out the way you intended. Tears of joy when you see a book you’ve been toiling over for years inside a beautiful cover.”—Kashmir-born British novelist Mirza Waheed, answering “What Does It Mean to be a Writer?,” in “Small Talk: Mirna Waheed,” in Financial Times, November 8-9, 2014
