Notebook 2 | Self-Observation #1

I’m one of those writers who is far more into the creative process — the creation of characters, the development of new ideas, the building plot, all the brainstorming — than I am into the actual writing. Creation is easy, like breathing. Writing is work. Feels like work. Requires the stick-to-it-iveness of work. For the most part it’s enjoyable work, no doubt about it. However…

Writing is a mind at work. Creation is a mind at play.

I suppose I like to play more than I like to work, so that balance can be a struggle.
