Writers Retreat by Lloyd Cole.
Settling the dispute between the art of writing and relationship with others may be quite unsettling most times. As writers, we are always faced with what to write and this singular state creates a huge space in how we relate to people dear to us. Just so you, the song I want to feature on Daily Wisdom Words is on repeat. I just have to leave it that way so I write what I am supposed to write.
If you are reading this I’d like you to know that there is utmost need to balance your art and love life as a writer. Ideas may come when your spouse needs you. They may knock on your door and leave your hands and mind lost to thoughts you cannot but want to write down. I know! The question, big question, is how do you write and love? Can you answer that question? Tell me, can you?
You can’t. Like Samantha LeBeouf would gladly say to me. “Prioritize. What should come first? God. Then family…” and whatever you feel is necessary and valuable enough to fill the third position as a writer. Do you know the answer to the question now? I know you do.
