Thomas Wolfe Understands

I think I found a kindred spirit.

From "The Fiction Writer's Handbook":

"I think I am starving for publication. I love to get published; it maddens me not to get published. I feel at times like getting every publisher in the world by the scruff of his neck, forcing his jaws open, and cramming the mss. down his throat––'G**-d*** you, here it is! I will and must be published!'"

- Letter written to Sherwood Anderson

  1. Violently forcing other people to do your bidding. Kuhl!
