Hilarious, and true.
Those two things are not mutually exclusive, as this proves.
“24 HOURS IN THE ACTUAL CREATIVE LIFE
with apologies to more productive artists… this is how it feels some days:
12am – 4am – not dreaming of inspiring things to write about
5am – not waking up to write
6am – not greeting the day with a poem
7am – not drinking a cup of hot water with lemon
8am – not free-writing in our journal
9am – not loving the few sentences we’ve managed to type
10am – wordle
11am – not knowing whether to call it breakfast or lunch
12pm – not replying to emails
1pm – not writing but hey at least the google docs tab is open
2pm – not completing a 24-min yoga video
3pm – not knowing whether to call it lunch or a snack
4pm – quordle
5pm – not writing
6pm – definitely thinking about dinner
7pm – making dinner while listening to a podcast
8pm – dinner and Frasier
9-11pm – not reading the book that’s open in our lap; scrolling instead”
