The Limits of Words

"Bruno knew he was a good writer. No doubts there. But what he didn't know was how long it lasted: this state of good writerliness. He feared that being a good writer wasn't a constant. It wasn't a state or a plane of existence. Maybe it was a pinnacle you reached only momentarily. What he feared more than anything in the world was that each writer had a limit. A tab. And when your credit ran out, you were done, the well run dry."
