Quit while you're ahead...

Advice from Philip Roth to a young writer who has just had his first book published:

Quote:
ďYeah, this is great. But I would quit while youíre ahead. Really, itís an awful field. Just torture. Awful. You write and write, and you have to throw almost all of it away because itís not any good. I would say just stop now. You donít want to do this to yourself. Thatís my advice to you.Ē
