It was, I believe, Hemingway who said ‘Writing is not a full time occupation’. That’s true in more ways than one. You must live before you can write. And you must live while you are writing. But you mustn’t kid yourself and make excuses to stop work by confusing laziness with that old standby ‘lack of inspiration’.Arthurcclarke.org. (2019). The Writer – Sir Arthur C Clarke.
