on 1 year of Substack writing, the creative process, & fallow fields for inspiration
I loved this, your writing continues to be amazing 🤩
I enjoyed reading this so much. Thank you Samuel.
Question 8: In one sentence (or less), what is it that keeps you coming back to the blank page?
Loved reading this while I had some quiet time in an airport today. Paris it so special and I understand if not Paris.... then where???
Love the reflection that moving abroad for a creative life is very American. You're right! And I think Southern US culture fits with French culture in many ways we wouldn't expect.
This interview was like a long-awaited cup of coffee in the afternoon, after the post-lunch slump: refreshing, comforting, inspiring. Thanks for sharing it! :)
Hey! Maine girl here. I feel like you just stalked all the pages in my journals. Genuine portrait of a creative. And like you, I found Substack a year and a half ago through reading Elle Griffin, found you through Elle and Augusta through you!
I enjoyed reading this, Samuel. The part about having a rescuer complex and absorbing the anxiety of others resonated with me, I was inspired by the 'American' way of believing in the reality of your dreams since I come from a culture where dreaming is for fools, and can understand your inability to get bored with a routine because... hey, no routine possible in my life. Even with a day job I still feel like my life is so unpredictable 🤣 I always have some plans, some other stuff going on, some side project, hobby, new interest... I think it's a state of mind.
