Why wait for inspiration? It may never come. In any event, it comes more often to people who work hard. Such people also don’t count on inspiration, not wanting to be at the whim of such an elusive phenomenon.
In “The Angel’s Game,” the writer David Martin says this about waiting for inspiration:
Inspiration comes when you stick your elbows on the table and your bottom on the chair and start sweating. Choose a theme, an idea, and squeeze your brain until it hurts. That’s called inspiration.
