"Discipline is never a restraint [on creativity]. It’s an aid. The first commandment of the romantic school is: ‘Don’t worry about grammar, spelling, punctuation, vocabulary, plot or structure—just let it come.’ That’s not writing; that’s vomiting, and it leads to uncontrolled, unreadable prose. Remember: Easy writing makes hard reading, but hard writing makes easy reading."
