Notes on Writing: A Quote from Junot Diaz

If you’re writing for change (personal or societal) or you feel stuck in your writing, know this:

A writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise you keep writing anyway.

Junot Diaz (via Edwidge Danticat’s Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work)
