Writing Is Work, And It’s Art, Except When It’s Not

Recently, there had been that Twitter meme going around about your first seven jobs — I played, did my list, and I put “writer” on there because it was, is, and hopefully shall remain, a job. But it’s also not a job — for some, it’s a hobby, for others, an art form, for others still, merely an aspiration. And for many of us, it’s all of those things bound up with duct tape and shoved in the trunk of a fast-speeding car about to careen off a cliff.

I had thoughts on writing as work — and as not-work — which I’m putting in here.

PLEASE TO ENJOY.
