I think of quitting every single day. Have for years. I never do, but after I wake up at 4 am once again I always ask myself “why are we doing this shit?” But, after my little existential crisis, I always write.
It really is kind of absurd, but the thing is, people who are not creatives spend that extra time doing what? Watching tv? Getting drunk? Our time certainly isn’t THAT absurd. Though, sometimes I do think I should devote all this energy to something more profitable, like master computers or finance.
Regardless, this piece sums up exactly how I feel and what I experience every day.
