Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

“Not to work for pay, but to be paid for my work…”

with 2 comments

I feel that, you know, the enormous luck I’ve had in being able to make a living, and to never have had to have written one word that I didn’t want to write, to be able to have satisfied that dictum I set for myself, which was not to work for pay, but to be paid for my work—just to be able to satisfy those standards that I set for myself has been an enormous privilege.
