Sometimes life’s confusing.
The world wants you to be as reliable as an assembly line worker, but with the flair of an artist.
Best I can offer today – Ernest Hemingway*:
“Write drunk, edit sober.”
*(Shhh. Let’s just enjoy the quote before we start worrying that Hemingway never actually said this.
There seems to be a debate about where the exact line came from. I’m not seeing a solid conclusion.
Maybe the moral is: “Write drunk, edit drunk, do your tags sober.”)
