Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.

The same can be said for your work. If your book, work, art, passion or whatever is still inside you, it is too dark to see it. Get out there and get it done. You’ll feel better.

Creation of any kind is work. What separates artists from the herd are the ones who work. If you’re not working it is a choice. You can call it being blocked or uninspired or whatever. It is a choice all the same. Sometimes there are real things that do have to get done in life to keep everything going. If this is not one of those times, and you know what they are: disease, death, survival, or any number of things around those themes, you choose how to spend your time. Today, I’m writing. Write on.
