Writing is Magic…Quotes for writers (and people who like quotes)

WritingWriting isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid or making friends. Writing is magic, as much as the water of life as any other creative art. The water is free. So drink.

    I like this quote, but I’m not sure I agree with it. Writing takes time, and is time free?

    Isn’t King saying that writing – like the other creative arts (music, art etc) – is what makes life exciting, joyous, magical, frustrating, challenging? And that creative energy is an essential part of us, a core element. So, in that context, I guess time doesn’t come into it. It would be like saying time spent being happy could be used for other things…That’s how I read it. What do you think?
