It’s not an easy thing to spend countless hours on pure thoughts and imaginary people. There isn’t a guarantee this will be a ticket wealth, richness and fame. if anything, it’s the road to despair. The odds are always against you.
So why do it?
I love the independence and freedom it offers, I create my work and how I sell it, I don’t follow anyone’s rules, just mine. I can lounge here all day and just think, without a boss screaming at my laziness, I need to think daily, often hourly to really grasp something.
Time waits for no one, fools, nor savants, so attack and roll with the punches.
