"The difference between a Not Writer and a Writer is the difference between someone who *could* write and someone who *does*. A Not Writer is someone who experiences blocks and obstacles and timing issues and lets them prevent him or her from actually writing. A Not Writer may certainly be creative, insightful and capable of writing lyrical prose, but most of the time they’re too busy Not Writing to get any Writing done. That’s such a shame, such a waste, and that’s the reason I so often deploy Tough Love upon those who ask for advice."

Alex Vance considers the problem of the Not-Writer, a fine addition to our ongoing archive on writing.  

The daily routines of famous writers should leave little doubt that the single most important skill in writing is the art of showing up.

"We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work."

"I came to understand the euphoric joy brought on by the natural world of the Caribbean islands as a very small girl, maybe six years old. We had taken a trip to visit our family in Jamaica. Uncle Courtney drove us into the city for beef patties and jelly donuts. We passed by buses crammed with people, school children holding onto the sides, their navy blue uniforms blowing in the wind. Teenage boys relaxed in the beds of pick-up trucks, their legs shoved between stalks of sugar cane. The waists of women were wrapped in skirts and sashes of turquoise and coral, paired with t-shirts and meshed ganzi’s –or A-shirts—carrying baskets on their head, to market filled with fruit."

Pure white colors and straight flat surfaces are today’s contemporary interior styles. It’s one of the most common, but for good reason. The simplicity and purity calms and simplifies the mind. ~ IDH
