Learning to Balance Life and Creativity

19 Feb

Learning to Balance Life and Creativity

Where ever your creative talents lie, you must not tip yourself too far in one direction or the other. So many people call themselves writers, but rarely, actually write anything down at all. I have heard the old adage over and over “Butt in Chair equals writing.” You must stop telling yourself “I will write when I am finished—decorating, paying bills, reading this book, cleaning the bathroom…” Your writing needs equal billing. Don’t let your creative brew ferment on your finger tips, make sure you spill it on the page or, take it from the Walrus in Alice in Wonderland—
“The time has come,” the walrus said, “to (write) of many things: Of shoes and ships – and sealing wax – of cabbages and kings”
(okay so I used a little bit of poetic license, but I am a fiction writer after all and right now, my butt is in a chair writing!)
