Oh Boredom.

Boredom is not an end product, is comparatively rather an early stage in life and art. You've got to go by or past or through boredom, as through a filter, before the clear product emerges.
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

I am suffering from boredom. It is a horrible malady--getting in the way of creative process. I hope that what I am feeling is just an "early stage in art" and that a "clear product will emerge." Hopefully Fitzgerald is correct and not Beaton's interpretation.

Perhaps the world's second worst crime is boredom. The first is being a bore.
-Sir Cecil Walter Hardy Beaton
