Charlotte Wood’s Seven Enviable Lines

I came across this wonderful piece from Australian writer Charlotte Wood and thought it was so fantastic I had to share it with you guys:

It’s from a speech Wood made at a writer’s festival last week in which she discusses seven contradictions and lessons about the writing life that she wished she had learned earlier in her career.

I could relate to every single one of them and, indeed, wish I had known about them earlier too. Some of them I’m still learning and getting my head around. Very illuminating and inspiring 🙂
