  1. “. . . the trick is to learn the trick.”

    Oh yes. I love this. Is there a hat I can buy, from which a rabbit magically appears with no effort on my part? Is there a box full of tricks? A special mirror?

    1. Only if the magic appears effortless is it magic. But you will know that the effort is ceaseless; that the box of tricks is a toolbox, no more and no less; and that the special mirror will sometimes reflect that which you will find almost unbearable to behold.

    1. Depends on what you want. If you want to be a strong writer–no matter what you’re writing–you have to look in the mirror. And you have to do it while you’re not looking, so you’ll see who’s really there.
