    “I love going back again and again to philosopher Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, which were published in the 2nd century AD when he was a Roman Emperor. The writing is drawn from his private journals, and it’s so beautiful and reassuring. I wrote about Meditations in Big Magic; there’s something I find really comforting about reading the frustrations of a Roman Emperor having writer’s block. He’s trying to get himself off the dime, and he’s saying ‘Come on Marcus, just try to write one page today. You can do it.’ It’s so great to see that the struggle to get out of your own way is not a new battle.”
