15 years and this is what I have to show for it.
I wish I had a definitive answer, or even a leaning one way or the other. But for me some days the whole writing chase feels like a gift. Other days, definitely a curse.
The "curse days" can usually be traced back to a feeling of chasing on... er, one leg? Haha trying to keep the metaphor afloat. But, by "one leg" I mean by having a day job that has its own demands and an I WILL TAKE UP YOUR WHOLE WAKING DAY schedule.
That isn't necessarily to say that writing without that obstacle would lead to 100% "gift" days. But, with being able to determine one's own schedule and session duration alone, yeah, I'm fairly certain there'd be a whole lot more.
