But I don’t want to practice

I Love Stephen KingI’ve been reading On Writing from horror author Stephen King. This caught my attention: Talent renders the whole idea of rehearsal meaningless; when you find something at which you are talented, you do it (whatever it is) until your fingers bleed or your eyes are ready to fall out of your head. Even when no one is listening (or reading, or watching), every outing is a bravura performance, because you as creator are happy.

Not really much more to say after that,
