Quote of the Day: The feeling that it’s never quite right

I am irritated by my own writing. I am like a violinist whose ear is true, but whose fingers refuse to reproduce precisely the sound he hears within.
Gustave Flaubert

I know this feeling both as a writer and as a musician.

    So true. If Flaubert writes for Bleacher Report, he’d be revising or editing his articles every day.

  • Scott Harris

    Great quote! And all this time I thought it was just me.
