Today’s worksheet is to help address a dichotomy that I think we all feel torn by: writing for the masses vs. writing for our inner artist. As with all troublesome binaries, I’d like to encourage the use of a little light deconstruction. After all, we know there’s no one right answer, but we still keep grappling with this question, as every writer has done before us. How can we take away the power this conflict has over us, at least for the present moment?
