Writing should always be free, and only as concerned with formality as the writer wishes. This room is teaching me to write again, the wall bricks, the new desk nearly assembled, this laptop, the chair, window to my right, fence and tree.
My relationship with writing’s changing, as me the character in his books changes. Legend of Mike Madigan, not legendary but relatable, human… connectivity. Stress and anxiety devalued, deemphasized, diminished nearly entirely. Again laughing… the writing and the room, this new thought shape offering instruction.
The bills will always be there. Enjoy your morning, your latte or whatever you’re drinking at YOUR desk. Decide to focus on YOU, your story. The immediate Now and all its value…. Be your own Dean Moriarty.
