My own experience has caused me to think that only a few of us are meant to become writers, artists, and musicians—and most are not. Those with that destiny often know it at an early age, can’t explain where it came from, and can’t be stopped. The others can’t be pushed, coaxed, or led into a vocation that wasn’t meant for them.
