"The only way to do great work is to love what you do" (stolen from a Colin Smith comment)
Fear is a pretty good motivator. I've got a draft of one book sitting around, full of beta comments and waiting for revision. (I'm doing a second draft on another book first, not just putting this one off.) I'm terrified to look at it because I can't believe some of the mess I wrote, but I'm more terrified that it will always suck if I don't look at it.
Your post was funny and so is his! Thanks for a laugh this morning and also teaching me what a blunderbuss is.
Sounds as if it would be equally effective--and circumvent the difficulty of getting a concealed blunderbuss permit--to fix him up a whiskey-filled barrel and spigot.
