My Own Worst Enemy

"But the thing is. . . I think your mind is too much on the writing so that you really don't have time to really sit down and go into whatever this is that's flailing you, all these people flailing you, and so that you're not really hungup on that, it's just a feeling that you don't deal with, and so you, you know 'cause you've got too much other things on your mind. . . Yes, it's just because you're writing, see, you're really only concerned about the writing."
