An Ounce in a Bucket


ride through the spectrum

John McPhee has published more than 25 books,

even though he rarely writes more than 500 words a day.

He once tried tying himself to a chair to force himself to write more, but it didn’t work.

He said, “People say to me, ‘Oh, you’re so prolific.’

God, it doesn’t feel like it — nothing like it.

But, you know, you put an ounce in a bucket each day, you get a quart.”
