There’s a famous William Morris quotation that I love: “you can’t have art without resistance in the materials.” It’s wonderful to remember when you’re sweating to turn a roughly-hewn draft into something with a semblance of humanity, that your work wouldn’t be worthwhile if the words didn’t put up a fight. It would be too easy, and the result would be weak and vague. Enjoy the friction and use it to hone your art. Vive la résistance!
