This piece was largely inspired by a poem by Charles Bukowski called "So you want to be a writer?"

It's such a powerful poem that I was in tears listening to it. I'm so grateful a friend shared it with me! I felt aligned with it, and painted this piece with that energy. 🔥


Some of my favorite lines:

"Unless it comes out of your soul like a rocket,
Don't do it.
Unless the Sun inside you is burning a hole in your gut,
Don't do it.

When it is truly time,
and if you have been chosen
It will do it by itself
and will keep doing it
until you die
or it dies in you.

There is no other way,
And there never was."

--Charles Bukowski 
"So you want to be a writer?"
