Fantastic quote on writing from Ira Glass, and one that proves to be a great comfort every now and then.

I really wish someone would have told me this a few years back, when I was less a writer and more like a gasping fish, lost on an unfathomable shore. I remember desperately wanting my words to catch up to my ambition, and the more I’ve output over the last couple of years, the more I feel like there’s actually some water under my fins, instead of endless grains of sand.

Keep closing the gap.
