In her lyrics Queen Bee (aka Sasha Fierce) calls divas the female version of a hustler. It got me thinking about the struggles of the female hustle and what it takes to be a true hustler. In the next few lines I will give you first hand information about female hustlers from my perspective and some insight into why I have the most sincerest respect for women who hustle for a living. Here we go. In our dictionaries hustling is linked to words like swindling, fraud, illicit and even prostitution, so why do we use this word to describe our hard-work.
Why do I write? Is it to get my creative juices flowing, maybe to some extent, but it goes a lot deeper than that, when I write I am fully alive. I am drawn into the current moment, in fact, it is an aesthetic experience. One in which my senses are operating at their peak.
Writers make art out of everyday ordinary moments.
What motivates people to write is sheer egoism, sometimes writers will write out of the desire to seem clever, to be talked about, to be remembered after death, to get their own back on the grown-ups who snubbed them in their childhood. While this might not be the most unselfish of motivations, it’s certainly natural.
