When to write
Oliver Sacks, author of deep essays and wide books, would turn his head, lower it, and look out of the corner of his eye at the page.
His migraines would blind his vision. Keeping his neck cricked in this angle was the only way to see.
When you are tired. When it is late. When you do not have time.
"Writing, is more important than pain" - Oliver Sacks.
