Is That All There Is?

“In a way, all writing… is an arduous and thankless exercise, not unlike faith in God.  Sometimes, when you are in the act of writing you feel part of a preordained plan, someone else’s design. That someone else might as well be God.  And then one day you rear back and survey everything you have done, and think. Is that all God had in mind? But it’s all you got.”   from Roger Rosenblatt in The New York Times Sunday Book Review.
