This piece in McSweeney’s is just perfection and I’m not even a “creative” writer: If You Love to Write Just Wait Until You Try Not Writing.
Let me ask you something: When’s the last time you wrote and thought, That felt good and also I am good at this? […] You know what would take away that doubt and all those sad feelings forever? Yup.
[…] If you’re concerned that Not Writing will make you feel bad, ask yourself, Do I feel good now? Writing might seem like the answer, but I assure you, it is almost always the question, and that question is why?
