Inspiration of this post.
George R. R. Martin.
I think of the successes he’s had of the past and scale of his body of work and rate of productivity and then I see the wall.
He can’t finish out the last book in his magnum opus. He can’t or is unable to sceal his legazy as a writer. What’s the problem? What’s the situation going on?
It boils down to time and a moment when age has caught with you.
How can age and time catch up with a writer? Isn’t the art and the craft totally depended on the mind and imagination?
No. The mind is a physically aspect. It is apart of the body and both have time limits for how effective and spark they can be on any given day or the acceleration of age, time and interest.
A professional boxer has a window of time he can be active and sharp on the game before time and age slow them down.
I think about this aspect every day. I have a time limit myself on my own scope and body of work I wish to get half way down by my late forties. I’m in good physical shape and I’m always conscious of my weight and striving to work on my focus and staying active on achieving my goals.
I have so many stories, poetry collections and blog posts I wish to write and audiobooks I want to produce. I don’t care about legazy so much as getting the work done so when I forget it all one day. I have something to give and share that hopefully might inspire someone else to create their own realms of stories and continue the story by hopefully bothering from me and others to make great stories.
