Do what you love

Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life – Confucius

Okay.  How do find out what you love? Once you do find it, how do you make a living at it so you can continue to do it?

Some days I’m super excited to write and dream of a day when it’s all I have to do.  Other days I wonder if I even like writing, much less love it.

Does loving it mean that even when you seemingly hate it, you still have a desire to do it? (Which I do.)

Part of what makes me question this I think stems from the fact that most of the time when I’m fired up to write, I’m in a situation where it’s just not possible.  Even to jot things down to work on later or put notes in my phone.  Then when I finally get a chance, both the excitement and the inspiration have faded and I’m left wondering why I was so excited because only bits and pieces of the idea are left.

Are these just normal writerly ups and downs?
