This month’s IWSG question asks: How has your creativity evolved since you began writing?
In my previous career, I was a programmer. I dwelled in a company cubicle Monday through Friday, 40-60 hours/week. And often on weekends because that’s when programmers break stuff make system changes. That sort of job, which I held for longer than I choose to reveal, shaped my approach to all work, including writing.
Basically, the approach goes like this: show up. Ideas happen on their own. Work does not. Guess which one of those outcomes is no good without the other.
Parties and umbrella drinks are great on their own. But together, they make a celebration.
I am humbled by the talent, skill and plain hard work brought to this month’s challenge. Sure, I had a lousy April but life happens, and I didn’t prep. I appreciate your dropping by to check on my post, but now look to the column on the left.
