Somebody said this recently, in the context of advice, maybe even specific to writing. I read it somewhere but have no idea whose comment it was.
It seems somehow profound to me, audacious, startling, brilliant, unnerving.
If I am to finish my novel (did I say IF? Oh dear!) does it mean I must ignore everybody? Would I dare do this? Is this at the core of some key truth? Does it resonate all too well with me as I examine what slows me down?
Incredible. IGNORE EVERYBODY.
