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."
