“Writing is So Much Easier When I am Free”

Every day I write whatever comes to me to write about. And I love doing it.

But if I am asked to write about a particular topic – even one I know well, and may of my own volition have written about previously, I don’t enjoy the writing experience nearly as much.

It’s so much easier when I am free. Free to express what is within me yearning to be set free at that time. No external pressure. No demand.

It’s the same, I suppose, with painting a subject. The artist, how freely he may interpret it, abstract from it, is never free from the demand of the subject.
