Twitter ran a fun little “Moment” yesterday with David Boles.
Boles is the author of over 50 books and over 25,000 articles. He has a goal of writing 2,000,000 million words each year. You think you’re measly goal of a thousand words a day is lofty?!?
Twitter compiled a number of tweets from the last year by David Boles, who you can follow @DavidBoles. You can view the entire Moment here, but I wanted to share some of my favorites.

Writing is the effervescence of "Kill or Be Killed." It isn't gameplay or workshops or chatting with friends. pic.twitter.com/gsYBdBplex

There is no romance in writing. The process is bloody, dirty, and reeking of inhuman sweat. The mortal coil, reeks! pic.twitter.com/qVO0IL4yNr
