I don’t want to loose these words of Dorothy Parker. (source)
This is instead of telephoning
I cant look you in the voice.
I simply cannot get that thing done
yet never have done such hard night and day work
never have so wanted anything to be good
and all I have is a pile of paper
covered in WRONG WORDS.
Can only keep at it
and hope to heaven to get it done.
Don’t know why it is so terribly difficult
or I terribly incompetant [sic].– Dorothy Parker, 1945, a telegram to her editor
