Writing and Other Afflictions

"If it was easy, everyone would do it." –Jimmy Dugan, "A League of Their Own"

How Do You Feel When You Finish A Book?

This is how Roald Dahl‘s grand-daughter widow remembers him feeling:

He used to get grumpy when he was finishing a book and I remember saying, “But you should be so pleased you’re reaching the end!” And he used to say, “You don’t understand – it’s the fear of never writing another one.”

(Edited to correct grand-daughter to widow–I misread the preceding paragraph.)
