Ask writers how they came to writing, and many of them will tell you it’s a “vocation”; something they can’t but do. In his book The Art of Work, Jeff Goins makes a kind of call to arms, asking people to listen to the voice telling them to write, give up on purposeless living and do what they are ‘made’ for.
To put words, letters, numbers, or musical notation on a surface using a pen, pencil or similar instrument.
As a writer, I’m obsessed with honing my process.
“Talent is extremely common. What is rare is the willingness to endure the life of the writer.” ~Kurt Vonnegut.
