William Gibson on writing

This is from an interview in the New York Times with William Gibson, author of Neuromancer:

About how he has written so many books, he says: “I suspect I have spent just about exactly as much time actually writing as the average person my age has spent watching television, and that, as much as anything, may be the real secret here.”

I think the man is correct. There's not really any other way to be a writer than to write.
