How to create a masterpiece

Prolific author, Steve Pressfield, often asks, “How many words did you write today?”

What he means is if you are going to be a professional writer, and if you sit down to write three or fours a day, regardless of the quantity and quality, eventually you will have a book or a script for a movie. By simply putting the ass to the chair, you are able to do the work that is necessary to put together a work of art.

Too often, we think that every time we sit down, we need to have a masterpiece. But really, you get your masterpiece eventually by sitting down long enough to make something out of nothing.
