Writing is Not Hard

Writing is not hard.

Writing well is very hard.

Writing so well that every single word is not only in the perfect, correct place, but every single word is the perfect, correct only word that could work in that exact, specific spot, so much so that the words become a moving image, the entire story becomes this living, breathing thing that burrows in your mind is so difficult that to my knowledge, the only man who's ever achieved it is James Joyce.
