lanalucy: (WaN Kara)
Jenny Crusie doesn't always flip my skirt with her blog posts, but this one makes perfect sense of my life, and coming to writing/editing/creativity in my late forties.

Plenty of Time

Galen calls them “experimental innovators,” people who have to research and understand and hone their skills in order to figure out what they want to do. They don’t start knowing, they search and learn in order to find out what they want to do. As Gladwell puts it, “The Cézannes of the world bloom late not as a result of some defect in character, or distraction, or lack of ambition, but because the kind of creativity that proceeds through trial and error necessarily takes a long time to come to fruition.”

It's oft been said that Lana has to do everything the slow way. It's true. Now I understand why.

There is plenty of time. But don't let that keep you from telling people you love them. There's never enough time for that.
