I think some people are inspired by the struggle. For me, the struggle drowns me and takes away my voice. I can’t be that artist archetype — drunk and aimless, beating my body and my life down for the sake of my art. I need to meditate, to have money in the bank, to have a real home, to free myself from the burden of financial stress. Only after all that can I even begin to think about writing. My best work is not born from struggle, as it turns out. It’s born from a sense of security and safety which often goes hand in hand with financial abundance.
You Don’t Have To Struggle For Your Art

Love the distinction between craving a secure life and a lack of passion in pursuing dreams. I have questioned my resolve to write many a times and seems I am fueled by comfort rather than a brawl with destiny.
