It's all connected
I believe that we all need to express the wilder sides of our nature. You might like to dress up as a Wookie. I seek out weird and wonderful experiences. The point is that we often feel work and play aren't connected. Going to Burning Man changed the way I thought about writing.
I used to think there was no common ground between the writing I do for a living and for myself. I was wrong. Learning how to write copy that works taught me how to write, full stop. We are splendidly strange and complex people, you and I, and everything we do should inspire us in our work.
