One of the few things I know about writing is this: Spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, right
away, every time. Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book, or for another book,
 give it, give it all, give it now. Some more will arise for later, something better. These things fill
from behind, from beneath, like well water. Similarly, the impulse to keep to yourself what you have
learned is not only shameful, it is destructive. Anything you do not give freely and abundantly
becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes.” - Annie Dillard
