The hard path of a new writer

One of the most common themes world is a new author I need to figure it out. It's extremely hard to write a book when you are not used to it. Then to go through all the editing, the fear of it not being very good the stress on your ego.... It can be very hard. At the end of all this, the author then needs to publish the book. That includes marketing and figuring out finding an audience. I've published enough now, that I realized I do this for me. I don't really write for a specific audience, or a hot topic, or to gain money. I write what I want to read, what I want to explore. At the end of the day, the publishing and making money, is simply about recouping costs.

The joy of creation

I wonder if art is a blank canvas, or blank glob of clay, or a blank page? That there is the start of something formless, shapeless, beckoning out from empty area? That the artist can see like an  iceberg peeking the water? They may not know the full shape, but wonder about the discovery. This is the joy of creation. To explore, through building.

Missing timelines

Timelines are hard for people. I'm not sure if this has to do with our own deaths, or social standings, but not meeting a timeline can be painful. For some reason we think that were less, that we could have been more organized or energetic. While it would be impossible for me to make a blanket statement regarding everyone's timelines, I can say for my own, best I can do is acceptance. I need to accept the good that I've done, with the time that I've had. That needs to be enough. Tomorrow always comes, and I don't know if that's a blessing or a curse.
