You have to go after it with a club. It may not turn out to be that great and it might eventually find its way to the dumpster or recycling bin, but a professional shows up and works no matter what. A professional knows that the first hour or two of work is simply a warm-up exercise until their fickle muse finds them worthy of her attention. A professional artist knows that it takes years if not decades of experimentation and practice to perfect their craft. Even though professional artists have been known to change their focus as their work and skills evolve, they do this only sparingly and often only within their chose medium. In other words, painters continue to paint, writers continue to write, and musicians continue to play. Of course there have been professional painters and musicians who are also very good writers and vice versa, but they are the exception rather than the rule.
