i keep waiting for words to come to me when i’m writing today. however, from what i’ve learned in my time as a writer, you have to go looking for your words. they’re hiding, and you have to lure them out- you must seek them. otherwise, you’ll never find them.
this is the line between talent and work.
sometimes the words you find will be better than the ones your neighbor finds- but he is better at finding them than you are. we can always improve the lot we get, and the frequency in which we find words, through practice.
thus, if you desire to be a respectable writer, you must go on word hunts every day, finding the optimum hiding spots and the ultimate hunting techniques.
