Author Lily Luchesi's PSA
Another unasked-for PSA: if you don't like what you're writing ... don't write it.
Quit and take up something that will bring you joy.
I don't give a damn if you have a brand, make a new pen name. Just don't be miserable while you're creating. That's no way to live.
Sure, most of us want to make writing our sole career. But even so, sacrificing your joy to do it just because you feel you HAVE to write something is not the way to go.
You'll burn out, and readers will tell your heart wasn't in what you wrote.
Art is joy. Art is love. Art is passion. An artist losing our passion is how we die our first death.
There is no room for hesitancy or disdain.
Create. Spread your joy. Readers will appreciate it.
"If This can no longer resonate, no longer make my heart vibrate, then this will be how I die my first death. But what if that moment's right now?"— RM, "Black Swan"
