When I do struggle, it's almost always because I haven't been engaged with my non-writing life or done the research needed to be able to sit down and let my hands pour what's in me onto the page. That may also be because I write nonfiction. That may change in the future and I'm curious to see what happens when I take on the job of creating an entire world and characters within it.(less)

Jonathan liked a quote
The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell
“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”
Joseph Campbell

“Fear of judgment stifles our ability to embrace uncertainty and as part of that process delivers a serious blow to our willingness to create anything that hasn’t already been done and validated.”
Jonathan Fields, Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel for Brilliance

“The more certain you are of the answer or the outcome in advance, the more likely it is to have been done already—to be derivative—and the less anyone will care, including you. Anything certain has already been done.”
Jonathan Fields, Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt into Fuel for Brilliance

“A good life is not a place at which you arrive, it is a lens through which you see and create your world.”
Jonathan Fields, How to Live a Good Life
