You’ve just written the reflection of my own thoughts, Edie.
Our writing goes a lot deeper than the grind. I think most artists and writers are seat of the pants type people in life — we’re “open personalities” by nature, it’s what keeps the gates to new knowledge open, and gives us new material to work with a lot of the time.
Knuckling down to some sweat shop writing plan is a far cry from what writing is all about — and I wholeheartedly believe that the need for dedicated writers, who produce stories , poetry and good non-fiction is still needed in this world.
Thanks for these thoughts and all the best for the coming year .
