I thoroughly appreciate the time you took to write this extremely lengthy response along with your abundance of citations and examples.
It seems you felt quite strongly about this piece, which I am also flattered by— And I did read every single word of it, so I’m saying this in full honesty.
To that note, this advice is only for those who wish to take it and not necessarily for everyone. Everyone has their own methodology, processes, and means of inspiration, so I won’t argue with people on what works for them.
That being said, we all have our differences. This doesn’t need to apply to you or every single person who reads this. I’m just writing from my point of view.
Thanks again for your feedback.
