Famous writers, writing… Joseph Conrad

Joseph Conrad said “Art is long and life is short, and success is very far off.”

Joseph ConradI write because I can’t not write. Since I could hold a pencil, I have written stories and I will die before I manage to write all the ideas in my head. Conrad knew this too.

Read the opening paragraphs of The Secret Agent and Lord Jim.
