Taking Notes x Cason Sharpe
The following interview has been edited for clarity and length.
What effect has the pandemic had on your writing practice?
It has let me sit with myself in a way that I wasn’t able to before. In the past, I usually worked full time and then wrote in the evenings, so having time to centralize it has definitely changed my practice. If you’re used to writing from five to ten pm during your free time, there’s pressure to consider whether something will get published or if you’ll make any money from it. These days, I feel like I can just write and trust that even if the results don’t go anywhere immediately, it’s still part of a worthwhile process.
