I really love this post. Whenever I become overwhelmed by the practical choices I've made that I fear slay my creative path, I remind myself that William Carlos Williams was a doctor as his day job. You can make a living and successfully create.

Maybe you will think this is boring/silly, but this comic gave me a chuckle and made me think of you. Author humor, I guess?


As I'm turning 40 this year I have some 40-themed goals; one of which is reading 40 books. I love reading. I'm better when I'm reading a good book that inspires or motivates me, or, challenges my current perspective. I'm glad to hear reading is back on your radar. Mitch's book is on my to read list, too.

On a related note to writing, art, putting off your craft, etc. if you haven't read The War of Art by Pressfield I encourage you to add it to your list!

You definitely will write that book. Perhaps, the experiences that you have gained and will gain add richness and depth to the background of your book.
