Arthur J. Burks

Arthur J. Burks, author of hundreds of pulp stories: "I've no patience with writers and would-be writers who don't write. Anybody can write. Those with the urge don't, simply because they are too lazy. With bosses over them they would industriously earn a salary. Without bosses, most of them lack the force to boss themselves into four hundred a week, which isn't too much for a writer to make if he works seven hours a day--and takes Friday, Saturday and Sunday off for the weekend. With most writers, the weekends never end."
