“Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.” — Mark Z. Danielewski

I first started writing twelve years ago. I thought it would be easy. I didn’t like to read, but I did like to imagine.

For a long time it was a lot easier to imagine than to write.

Passion as a feeling carried me at all kinds of ceremonies and book signings and stuff. It was all so clear. I was going to become rich and famous and my words would change the world.

What words?

Exactly.
