Quote of the Day 9-3-16

“The writer must be in it,
He can’t be to one side of it, ever.
He has to be endangered by it.
His own attitudes have to be tested in it.
The best work that anybody ever writes is the work
That is on the verge of embarrassing him,
Always.”

-Arthur Miller
as quoted in “Writing with Style” by John R. Trimble
