For Christ sake write and don't worry what the boys will say nor whether it will be a masterpiece nor what. I write one page of masterpiece to ninety-one pages of shit. I try to put the shit in the waste-basket... Forget your personal tragedy. We are all bitched from the start and you especially have to be hurt like hell before you can write seriously.

-Ernest Hemingway
(In a letter [1934] to F. Scott Fitzgerald)
