Louise Glück on writers block

“Writing is painful as a life. I feel that even after decades. Doesn’t get easier, which surprised me. The yearning and failing parts don’t get easier. And then there are the miraculous times when fluency is effortless. Or even the times of just being absorbed deeply. Can’t think of anything better. I regret being unable to occupy that state constantly but to be there at all seems a marvel beyond all others.”
