Fish on a Hook

Somewhere a jackhammer is rattling, and a cat is on my lap demanding pettage. The inner procrastinator has help today.

Writing is like having a fish on a hook. You have to pull hard, but not break the line.  If you force, the fish produces stress chemicals that damage the taste of the flesh.

But give too much line, the fish may figure out how to escape. And anyway, if you let the damn thing out all day, when will you eat? You must persist.
