Well said and all too true.
Unfortunately, I far too often have these crystallizing moments but then forget the details or can’t recover the feeling when I do have the time to write.
It’s like trying to hold onto a dream – the more I think on it, the harder it gets to retrieve.
There are those times when we have space to write (or do whatever it is we love) and there are those times when there seems to be no space. These are the hungry times. They’re not wasted because they crystallise our desires. We know exactly what we want to write when we can’t write.
