Clancy, 66, likens writing novels to learning golf
Wednesday, October 2, 2013
"You learn to write the same way you learn to play golf. You do it, and keep doing it until you get it right. A lot of people think something mystical happens to you, that maybe the muse kisses you on the ear. But writing isn’t divinely inspired – it’s hard work.”
And so, it could be said, is golf.
– Tom Clancy, American novelist, who died Oct. 1 in a Baltimore hospital at age 66
