"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."

Ernest Hemingway

"Writing is much like conversation: first you dig yourself a hole, then you dig yourself out of it."

Oh, I like your version!

(Both for what it says about writing and for what it says about conversation. My own conversations probably have just about this proportion of assertion and retraction.)
