“The critics and reviewers of a hundred years from now, if they remember any of us at all, may have opinions much different from those of today.”
Occasionally, there arises a writing situation where you see an alternative to what you are doing, a mad, wild gamble of a way for handling something, which may leave you looking stupid, ridiculous or brilliant — you just don’t know which.

Trust your demon.
