“I think I succeeded as a writer because I did not come out of an English department. I used to write in the chemistry department. And I wrote some good stuff. If I had been in the English department, the prof would have looked at my short stories, congratulated me on my talent, and then showed me how Joyce or Hemingway handled the same elements of the short story. The prof would have placed me in competition with the greatest writers of all time, and that would have ended my writing career.” ― Kurt Vonnegut
Please, please, PLEASE! Be thankful for writers like Vonnegut. This is truth he wrote here. Writers, take the time to understand what he said and set yourself free!
