Society will make pressing arguments: Settle. Conform. Avoid risk like it’s the plague. But if you’re a writer (or any kind of artist), the arguments you make will be AGAINST inertia. Your cover, your opening line…everything up to the last character on the last page will be an invitation to dream, to cheer, and to travel into strange lands.
IMHO, an artist must, on a regular basis, push themselves through their Work. And I hope that by ditching MY inertia, I’m inviting others to ditch theirs—in the dreams of their creations, and in life as well.
