Without writing itself in some way, or another.
There has to be space for it to come in. Creativity, of all kinds, is simply creating that space. That’s how I see it at its most basic level.
There is a blog to be written, but the space I might create for it to get done is not just mine; it sometimes needs to be taken up with other things and sometimes other people need to take it from you or, rather, you need to give it to them too.
There needs to be space for other people’s creations, allowing room for others into your life, physically and metaphysically.
Creating the space is often, necessarily, a solitary pursuit but as John Donne pointed out,
No man is an island entire of itself
