On a work-in-progress

“A work in progress…reverts to a wild state overnight. it is barely domesticated…it is a lion you cage in your study…you must visit it every day and reassert your mastery over it. If you skip a day, you are, quite rightly, afraid to open the door to its room. you enter its room with bravura, holding a chair at the thing and shouting ‘simba!'”
Annie Dillard
