And now a few words from Carl Jung...



"The artist's life cannot be otherwise than full of conflicts, for two forces are at war within him—on the one hand, the common longing for happiness, satisfaction and security in life, and on the other a ruthless passion for creation which may go so far as to override every personal desire. There are hardly any exceptions to the rule that a person must pay dearly for the divine gift of creative fire."

It's a really fortunate person who can make a living by following that burning desire to create!

Always amazes me to see people who can create and make a living as well.

Yup -- Mr. Jung has figured it out.
The creative urge can be overpowering for some writers, artists, and musicians.
