According to Susan Sontag, the writer must be four people:
1. The nut, the obsédé - supplies the material
2. The moron - lets it come out
3. The stylist - is taste
4. The critic - is intelligence
A great writer has all 4 – but you can still be a good writer with only 1 and 2; they’re most important.
