A real job. As a creative, these words have taunted me for decades. My main goal in life used to be to finally, one day, land a real job. A lot has changed.
It isn’t like I have a lot of it, you know? So when I sit down with my brain and mine it for words, that is time that I am not using to complete another task. That is critical time. And I know we all feel it.
Don’t let chaos be the excuse for why you can’t write or why you should get a different job or why you’re just not good enough. Let the chaos make you stronger, wiser, and resilient. Stop planning for chaos. Embrace it.
To writers, words are everything. We live them, we breathe them. We try to change the world and inspire emotional revelations with every flip of the pen and tap of the keys. Writers are suckers for words. So naturally, writers are also suckers for a good old-fashioned inspirational writing quote.
