The most profound words ever penned on the subject were probably laid down by Robert Heinlein:
Heinlein's Rules for Writing
- You must write.
- You must finish what you write.
- You must refrain from rewriting, except to editorial order.
- You must put the work on the market.
- You must keep the work on the market until it is sold.
--Robert A. Heinlein, 1947
But then again, Heinlein didn't have the neener-net, which kind of subverts rules 2-5.
