Oscar Wilde, On Writing

Oscar was a hippy before the word even came about!

I believe this excerpt is from a book that I had read many many years ago but I can’t remember the name:

“Oscar Wilde said, when asked the difference between a professional writer and an amateur, the difference is that an amateur writes when he feels like it; a professional writes regardless.”

Yeah, I think it just about summarizes what it means to be a writer.
