Shelby Foote on writing

“A man must write for himself, and then he must accept the penalties–including the possibility of damnation. You’ve got to put it all on the line; anything less than all is hedging and your work is weakened at the wellspring, hopelessly flawed, shot through with rot. Not to mention the sapping of vitality; that’s what hurts.”

–Shelby Foote, Civil War historian
