I wholeheartedly agree with you. In fact, I’ve been writing about this — going against yourself towards completion of a creative project just for the sake of it will always erode its magic.

There’s something about a genuine drive to write, the outcome which is incomparable to deliberate writing against natural will. At least I’ve experienced so. At least for creative writing.

Wish you the absolute best with your novel, Eli!
