Since I tend to see things through the 'writer's' lens, this quote raises some very interesting ideas. I've always heard, throughout my life, how fiction writing is a great hobby, but a poor career choice. Yet, every time I look inwards, a fiction writer keeps staring back at me. This quote reminds me of the truly great authors I've had the pleasure of meeting, talented artists and even more talented businessmen that somehow over come the odds and make it work regardless - they adjust their sails. That's the kind writer I aspire to be, the kind that has so many 'irons in the fire' that as the market or the world changes, he can adjust accordingly and take charge.
Here's hoping that I can figure that out sooner, rather than later, my fingers are crossed!
