I was chatting with another writer early this morning. We were discussing the choices we have to make in order to carve out time and energy to write our stories. These changes may include quitting a "career" job or moving to another place.
"When you say 'Yes" to something, you're saying 'No' to something else. That's how it is with my writing," I shared with him. "Recently, I've been minimizing the number of obligations in my life so that I can write."
When we discussed how to determine these choices, I said, "When we choose to write, we can never go wrong. We may go hungry, but we will never go wrong."
Not sure "where" that thought came from, but I've been contemplating it all day.
