Even people we recognize as outstanding in their field have internal struggles.
The latest example of this is a note The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams wrote to himself.
In it, he reminds himself that “Writing isn’t so bad really when you get through the worry” and that “You can certainly do very well for yourself with it!”
The “general note to myself” will appear in a book based off the late author’s archives, called 42, that will be published once enough advance copies are purchased.
The Guardian reports that Adams’s relatives weren’t surprised by the author’s pep talk for himself and that they wish he’d taken it to heart.
You can see Adams’s actual note and read more about 42 in the Guardian.
