The Pleasures of Not Writing

Leo Tolstoy:

I must write each day without fail, not so much for the success of the work, as in order not to get out of my routine.

John Updike:

I have never believed that one should wait until one is inspired because I think the pleasures of not writing are so great that if you ever start indulging them you will never write again.

From Daily Rituals, 169, 196.
