Writing Quote of the Week

I believe in having a structured approach. My philosophy is that I can sit down at any time with a problem, and if I sit there and don’t allow my mind to have distractions — no phone, no music, no televi­sion — my mind will eventually start to work on it on its own. It’s like a biosphere situation. I isolate myself — ’cause this is my ‘sit’ time. -Jerry Seinfeld
