In his endlessly fascinating book, Mason Currey gives us a peak into the inner motivations of writers, artists, and other creative types.
One of my favorite shows is “In Depth” on Book TV. And my favorite part of that show is where we are given access to the writing spaces of the featured author. Having watched that show for many years confirms that no two writers have the same pattern. Every writer (or creative type) is unique. Currey also makes this plain in his wonderfully wrought book.
Here a few, other things I took away from reading Currey’s book:
*The power of good habits and the struggle to develop them!
*Creative folks must create. There is a drive, even compulsion to do so.
*It is wise to have a steady means of income as it is difficult, especially at first, to make a living in the creative arena.
*Find your own voice because no one else has it!
