I’ve written before that where you draft matters.
The tools of the trade also matter. Different tools activate different parts of the brain. Take writing manually with pen and paper compared to whacking away at a keyboard.
Both produce the same thing. Or do they?
How you work matters. It affects the end product. But, you shouldn’t let the method stand in the way of your art.
The artwork is the product. The craft is the process.
The craft itself can be artwork, but it’s secondary to the art. Without the art, the process doesn’t matter. It’s important to not conflate the two.
The finish line is the most important thing.
How the sausage is made is irrelevant if there is no sausage.
