In his later years in Cuba, he got up every morning, went to the second building, typed standing up from 6:00 - 12:00 (noon) and made it a point to be drunk by 3:00. I, who also attempt to write, always keep in mind his motto: "Start with one perfect sentence."
Thanks, too, for the comments, BD!
TOTD: I think most people have put their own wants and needs aside from time to time to benefit someone else. I certainly have. However, I don't really view this a sacrifice. There are things we do out of love or duty or honor that don't dovetail perfectly with our own immediate desires but are still consistent with our own personal codes.
You can look at those times as a sacrifice or you can look at those times as a bit of a trial. I prefer to see them as a part of life that tests your convictions. It's less dramatic that way. ;)
