Dear Mr. Pressfield,
I am not sure I 100% agree with you on the “writing every day” if that is what my “thing” is…I write most days, like…sit down and write for the sake of writing. I write notes and numbers and all sorts of stuff all the time…but actual sit down and write for the sake of writing…I feel more ritualistic about it.
I write most of the time…but not everyday. When I do write tho, I thoroughly enjoy every second of it and the creative release I get is unparalleled in feeling.
And I think I write quite a bit if I just recently found two giant tubs filled with my writings that I have kept over the years. I want to eventually compile them all into some sort of coherent order.
I don’t feel bad about not writing everyday. I feel good about writing in spurts.
Thank you for getting me to write everyday there for a while. It got me back into writing and THAT I very much appreciate sir.
Good luck on whatever profound or just plain fun project you are working on these days.
(This is a letter addressed to Steven Pressfield who is the Author of “the WAR of ART”. I have been putting some of the principles he talks about in his book to work in my everyday life. A lot of it has been quite helpful in helping me get over myself and get productive and happy. A close friend I respect recommended it to me. For some readers, it could appear as just another self-help kinda book. For me, It was just the right combo of words to kick start some creativity and self-improvement.)
