Writing Advice - Creativity is heresy

Chuck Wendig, in a fantastic twitter thread about the creative process:

THREAD: there is no one way to be a writer, no one way to tell a story, no one way to do this thing we do as a hobby or as a job or as an art form. Some write a little every day, in an office; some write a lot at one time at varying, sporadic points. It’s all okay.

And then, later,

Creativity is heresy, every time. As it should be! Writing a story is forever an act of magic — sometimes it’s world-breaking magic, sometimes it’s cursed blood-magic, sometimes it’s practiced stage illusions, but it’s always a special kind of blasphemy.

I love that.
