Blank Pages

"See this page of paper? It’s blank," Scull said. "That, sir, is the most frightening battlefield in the world: the blank page. I mean to fill this paper with decent sentences, sir—this page and hundreds like it. Let me tell you, Colonel, it’s harder than fighting Lee. Why, it’s harder than fighting Napoleon."
Larry McMurtry, Comanche Moon

I found this on a particularly deep internet dive skimming the Ph.D. thesis of a distinguished engineer at Google.

Another book to add to my reading list.
